New "Silver Standard" ID check available

We've added a new form of ID document request to Alpha Legal, called the "Silver Standard".

Sitting between Basic/Bronze and Gold Standard is the new Silver Standard ID document check.  This requires:
  • photo ID (eg a passport or driving licence)
  • a single proof of address (eg a utility bill)
  • a bank statement, and
  • the client's signature.
Alpha Legal now has a "Silver Standard" ID document request option

This check costs just 10 credits and is ideal for IFAs, estate agents and will writers needing to verify the identity of the client without needing the "liveness check" provided by the Gold Standard video.

Alpha Legal is used by 100s of estate planners, will writers, accountants, solicitors and IFAs every day to communicate securely with their clients.

ID requests up 25% month-on-month - Alpha Legal is the safest and easiest way to get ID from your client

We are all working in the "new normal" whether we like it or not!  Clients do not expect to come to see you in person, just to hand you their passport and driving licence.  Why should they?


ID requests within Alpha Legal are 25% up, month-on-month.  Another 4,000 ID requests have flown through the Alpha Legal system.

These 4,000 clients have been able to sit at home and easily send photos of their passport, driving licences, bank statements and other documents straight from their phone knowing that the process was completely secure. 

Don't ask for ID documents by email - email is not secure!  Instead, use Alpha Legal - easy, safe & secure.
