    I don’t have SSN and ITIN. How can I open a bank account?

      Hi Fadhli,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      Most banks need to verify your identification. Thus, they would need your SSN or ITIN.

      To obtain an SSN, please get in touch with the Social Security Administration.

      To obtain an ITIN, you need to get in touch with the IRS.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Hi Fred,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      You can get a loan without a bank account. But it will likely cost you more than the average personal loan. That’s because many of your options fall into the category of short-term loans. These loans come by many names: payday, auto title, pawn, debit card and signature loans. What makes them expensive are fees and APRs that can top out at 700% or more.

      A checking account, however, opens the doors to stronger lenders and could help you potentially qualify for competitive rates, if you have good credit.

      To compare lenders who might help you, please go to THIS link.

      Please feel free in sending us a message if you need further help. :)
