*HELP!* Problem creating a Business Bank Account as a new 18 year old.

Hello All

In a bit of a situation here that’s been getting me really worked up. I recently just turned 18 a few days ago and filed for my first LLC, obtained EIN, submitted to IRS, etc, etc. I finalized my LLC but here comes the very frustrating part. When I was applied for a Business Bank Account, I input all my information and my SSN (Social Security Number) obviously. I wait a couple of days for it to be approved, but I got denied saying I “Mistyped” my SSN or couldn’t be found/identified. I know my SSN is 100% correct and even showed proof of my SSN Card to the Bank but it was still denied. I heard rumors that it could take up a few months for a new 18 year old to their identity (SSN) become fully identifiable, but I can’t really afford waiting a few months.

Is there anything I can do in my power to fix this? Any Recommendations? Help would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks.

Go in person with your ssn card. The bank needs to go a background check on ur SSN that’s why it’s denied automatically.

You can try checking Brex [https://www.brex.com/] they are a banking specialized in startups so maybe they can help you with that. Also Stripe Atlas helps with that even though they cover more of the entire business registration process.
