Who may open an account on Wealthfront?

Any individual 18 years old or older, who has a U.S. social security number, a permanent U.S. residential address, and currently resides in the U.S may open an account. We also require clients to have a U.S. phone number that can accept SMS text messages for security verification purposes.

We cannot support clients residing outside of the U.S., including U.S. citizens residing abroad for regulatory reasons. We will be sure to update our Help Center in the future if we do expand internationally.

If you are active duty military or a U.S. government employee living overseas  and don't have an active U.S. phone number, please contact us for additional verification steps to open an account.
