Verifying your PayPal account allows you to receive extra benefits, such as the ability to transfer more money to a bank account. However, these benefits are not available until PayPal processes your information and updates your status. If you have recently applied for a verified account and are curious about the status of your account, you can check your status online.
Open a Web browser and type "http://www.paypal.com" into the address bar. Hit "Enter."
