Companies who connect to the U.S. banking system must verify their customer’s identities. In this case, Know Your Customer (KYC) verifies individual identities to keep U.S. financial users secure
You may have heard of KYC previously as Customer Due Diligence (CDD). KYC financial compliance is actually encapsulated under the USA Patriot Act (2001), along with Know Your Business (KYB), the customer identification program (CIP), and Anti-Money-Laundering (AML) regulations.
Financial compliance (KYC, KYB, CIP, and AML) is essential for keeping the U.S. banking system, the Fed, and NACHA secure and U.S. financial customers protected.
There are a number of compliance requirements businesses need to follow when using KYB in a financial app. For Grow and Scale plans, you’ll need to be incorporated in the U.S. and each of your end-users will need to pass SSN verification or EIN verification.

When a high-quality photo (i.e., no blur, no cut-off corners, no blocked text, no glare, and high resolution) of a supported document is uploaded, most KYC applications are approved within minutes. Some applications can take up to 24-72 hours to process.
For businesses, KYC costs depend on the level of identity verification you require. You can view our levels here. Our pricing page has the most up-to-date information on prices and services available at different tiers.
At this time we only support U.S. bank accounts and credit unions. It is possible to use our API in conjunction with international money transfer APIs such as Corpay, Currencycloud and Thunes.
Upon providing the required information, a user will either be approved successfully, rejected due to wrong information, rejected due to missing information, or not approved. If the information matches the system, which occurs in 90% of cases, the customer is approved almost instantly.
There are times when the customer will be asked to provide additional documents. The appropriate documents might include pay stubs, passports, and birth certificates, which will then be manually reviewed by Sila’s compliance team.
