Does Western Union need to confirm my identity?

If you plan to send money regularly using wu.com, we will need to verify your identity. After that is finished, your send limit will increase to 5.000 EUR per transfer.

If you send online only occasionally, you can send up to 1.000 EUR within a 12-month period before we ask you to confirm your identity.
