I have been reviewing my mother's savings over the past few months, and have identified various savings schemes that might be better for her. However I have come across a stumbling block. Most of these require evidence of address (not a problem) and evidence of identity (definitely a problem). Actually, proving address might be a problem down the line: she currently still owns a property, so there are bills related to that, but when that's sold, the nursing home will be her address, and no utility bills will be forthcoming on that basis. Anyway: proof of identity. They require a driving license, or a passport, neither of which she has. Online banks are particularly bad about this, but there are building societies that also have this sort of restriction. Anyone have any ideas?
