What Is A Bank Identity Verification API?

Identity verification is a critical process to ensure that the person who is opening a bank account or applying for loans is the person they claim to be. Bank identity verification plays an essential role in open banking, anti-money laundering (AML), and know your customer (KYC) processes. For banks to be able to fulfill such verification services, they need to connect to a database. Envestnet | Yodlee identity verification API allows different applications to communicate, allowing banks to get instant access to customers’ financial data and avoid time-consuming ID verification.

What is Instant Bank Verification (IBV)?

The instant bank verification (IBV) process verifies that the bank account number and account details are valid before a transaction is processed. Verifying account details is especially important when processing a check or ACH payment in order to reduce fraud. At its essence, bank account verification and account validation adds accuracy and speed to a process that used to involve faxing over copies of financial documents, with verification taking up to several weeks to process. With IBV, the result is a speedier and more reliable, real-time accounting of a borrower’s financial picture, which is crucial in today’s fast-paced environment.
