No, you don't need provide any sort of age verification .

OPS, mistake!!!! Sorry From Linden Lab Official document: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:What_happens_to_my_Teen_Second_Life_account_when_I_turn_18%3F


Teen Second Life is for people 13 to 17 years of age. When you turn 18, you will become eligible for transfer to Second Life proper, where the age limit is 18 and older.

To move to Second Life from Teen Second Life...

You may be asked to send us:

  • A copy of a school or government-issued ID showing your date of birth.
  • A driver's license, passport
  • Or military ID are all acceptable forms of identification.

Send us a scan, photocopy, or fax and we will process your account and wish you a happy birthday!

When you arrive in Second Life, don't forget to send Blue, Claudia Linden or Matthew Linden an IM. They will make sure you are invited to the Teen Transfer group and receive all the associated perks!

Sending us a scan

Sending us a photocopy by mail

  • Linden Lab 945 Battery Street San Francisco, CA 94111

Sending us a fax copy:

  • Send your fax to us at (415) 243-9045

Process

  1. About a week before you are going to turn 18, submit a support ticket letting us know you have a birthday coming up. Happy 18th Birthday! Attach a scan or photograph of your identification and provide the names of your alts as well.
  2. Start taking care of business in TSL.
    • If you are the Founder of any of your groups and you wish to keep them open, make sure there is another owner in the group.
    • Partnerships will not transfer and you may want to dissolve it before you move to SL.
    • Take care of any land you own in TSL. What happens to land I own in TSL when I turn 18?

Questions & answers

Will my inventory transfer to SL?

Generally, yes!

Will my forum access transfer?

Yes, however it may take a few days to complete this transfer.

How do I get to SL when I have been transferred?

I guess it is time the mystery is revealed. Blue Linden puts on talons and swoops into TSL where you are picked up and carried (all the while he is doing his infamous double barrel rolls) to a giant crater. In one valiant swoop, Blue drops you into the hole where you will find a miners pick. Take the pick and start digging your way to SL.

OK, I'm kidding. When we transfer you to SL, your next login will put you into the Second Life grid. It's not quite as fun as digging your way, but it's a lot faster!

You will receive a response to your support ticket letting you know the transfer has been completed. Once you log into SL, contact Matthew Linden for an invitation to the Teen Transfer Group via IM or ticket. We'll provide you with a region location where you can build and use to set-home for a while.

" but is there anything else I need to do to unlock certain areas of the map or something like that?"

Adding to Irene's awesome-as-always reply, the main grid is divided up in ratings, there's PG content, mature content and adult content.  You don't have to do a thing or verify age (past what Irene has stated above to prove the move from TSL to the main grid) to access PG regions, just login and you're there.  To access mature and adult you will need to 'age verify' which is a simple and easy process you'll find out about in time... it's just entering info onto a website and if that fails 'manually' submitting scans of ID through a Support ticket.

Cheers Jonathan.
