You can open your synthetic indices account and trade without the need to verify your Deriv account. You will only be asked to do Deriv account verification if you want to withdraw more than US$ 10,000. This article will show you how you can easily verify your Deriv account and remove any withdrawal restrictions.
What is Deriv Account Verification
Deriv account verification is a mandatory procedure that helps the broker ascertain the clients’ identity & location when the client registers a trading account.
Such an account can then be used for illegal activities like money laundering. Account verification helps forex brokers ensure that their traders are genuinely who they claim to be.
The Deriv verification process is a critical aspect of the Know Your Customer process.
How Do You Verify Your Deriv Account?
The following are the Deriv verification documents needed:
- A valid ID or Passport or Driver's licence clearly showing your name and date of birth (for proof of legal existence). Use only the page with your picture if you are uploading your passport. If you are uploading your ID or Driver's licence upload both the front and back.
- A utility bill (e.g. electricity, water, gas, phone, internet) or bank statement in your name that has been issued in the last 6 months (for Deriv proof of address)
- You can also use a lease agreement showing your name and the name and contact details of your landlord
- If you do not have any proof of residence you can approach a commissioner of oaths and get a stamped affidavit. This is a simple and convenient way to get legitimate Deriv proof of address.
You will need to log in to your Deriv account and click on the account settings tab. Look for the account verification tab and click on the document you want to upload to verify your Deriv trading account. Do not be tempted to use forged documents.
This will be disastrous for you. Deriv has templates of legit documents and their computers can easily pick out forged documents.
When they do, you risk having your account closed.

To upload verification documents on Deriv you must click on the following: Login > > Settings > Profile > Verification/Authentication.
