To enable investing on your Public account, like any other brokerage account, you must meet certain requirements:

  1. Be 18 years of age*

  2. Have a valid Social Security Number

  3. Have a legal U.S. residential address

  4. Be a U.S. citizen, U.S. permanent resident or have a valid visa

In rare cases, we might have to ask for some additional information to complete your application, but rest assured we will always make this as seamless as possible.

*The awesome news is that anyone under 18 can totally download the app and use an inactive version. They'd be able to follow other investors and learn a lot that way, too.

If you ever have questions, the team is always here for you, so feel free to give us a shout on the app’s Chat or via email at
