Identification Query

 

Entities that have joined the National System of Electronic Payments (SINPE) may check their clients’ identity, by accessing official data on citizens in the system administered by the country’s Supreme Court of Elections.

 

Through this service, a duly authorized staff member from a financial entity may access online data on a client presenting their identity card to cash a check, enter into a loan agreement, make an investment, hand over a credit card, change their password (PIN), request a cash transfer, or withdraw some cash, among various transactions where clients’ identities need to be authenticated through their identity document.

 

Inquiries by entities that are part of SINPE are done on a one-by-one basis, and solely with the purpose of validating their clients’ identity, and for the procedures they are specifically carrying out. The following information on citizens may be accessed through these inquiries:
