    So the thing is I'm 18 (trying to look for a job) and need to set up a bank account but the thing Is in England you need two documents to do so. Photo ID and proof of address. Photo ID is fine as I can just use passport. But what about proof of address? (I still live at my parents house). I have nothing with proof of address on?. Does anyone know what's acceptable as proof of address that I might have or if you can create a bank account with out it?.

    Your National Insurance Number notification letter is typically acceptable; if not, any letter from HMRC, the DWP et cetera is usually accepted... though it depends on the institution.

    It is practically impossible to open a bank account with proof of address due to money laundering regulations; the closest without it would be a PayPal account.
