To apply for certain products through Cavendish Online we will require money laundering identification.

We will need to see original or certified (#) documents to prove your identity and your address. If you are applying jointly for a product we will need to see identification documents for each of you.

Either your passport or a UK driving licence would be suitable as proof of your identity. 

With regards to your address, we suggest a recent bank statement or utility bill (within the last three months, and unfortunately not a mobile phone bill) These documents must have been posted to your home address, we cannot accept them if they have been printed from the internet. If you do not have a bank statement or utility bill then we can accept your passport to verify your identity and your UK driving licence to verify your address.

Company MLI: If your employer is paying into your pension then we will also require a letter from the company on headed paper stating that they are paying into your plan and listing the main signatories/directors. We also require proof of the company address, i.e. an original or certified copy of a utility bill or bank statement dated within the last 3 months.

Pension for a minor: If you are setting up a pension for someone under 18 years old then please send money laundering information for them. We require the original or certified copy (#) of either their birth certificate OR passport. We will also require full MLI for the person paying the premiums.

#A certified copy is where a person of authority (solicitor, teacher, director, post office clerk etc) signs a copy of the original document stating that it is a true copy of the original document. They will need to sign and date the document and add their name and position. The person certifying the document must not be related to you or in a relationship with you or living at the same address as you.
