Hello, I'm sorry if this question isn't really where it's supposed to be. None of the other categories really felt fitting for this.
I am 22, I have never had a job. I have never owned a car, a house, a bank account, credit/debit cards, nothing. I am in college, still living with my parents. I have been searching around for a job that I can do from home, like freelancing or customer service, etc. Especially now since it is not possible to get a 9-5 job, an office job, etc. where I live. I have tried applying for a bank account with Varo and they denied me. I'm sure it's from me not having any source of income or from my credit score. The reason why I tried Varo in the first place is because I'm scared of not being able to pay credit card payments on time. I am not sure I will be able to keep a minimum in a bank account to keep it from getting messed up. I wanted to go with a bank that would be a little more lenient on those types of things. I want to be able to have a bank account for my paychecks (for the lack of a better term) open, before putting the paychecks there. I want to know that it has somewhere to go.
I have checked my credit score and it always says "unavailable". And I am 80% sure it's because I have no credit history.
Basically my question(s) are where can I find a bank account with these features that will accept my application? What are the steps I need to take to do this? What are the steps I need to take in general from here?
