One explanation -- I don't know how likely it is to be the accurate one, since I don't know the details of your case -- is that when your cumulative cash-outs hit a certain level, LL is required to verify your identity in order to comply with the relevant US tax and money-laundering laws.   It's a one-off.

If that's the case, then watch for the email they send you (check your spam folder, too) and follow the instructions.   It's a simple process, and when I had to do it, it delayed my cashout by one working day.   They had sent the email late afternoon California time, or the middle of the night my time.   I saw it when I checked my emails first thing in the morning (middle of the night in California) and dealt with it immediately, so when whoever sent it arrived at work (late afternoon my time) it was waiting for them.

Yes. Don't blame this one on Linden Lab. The U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires the Lab to submit tax forms to them if they are paying out more than a threshold amount of cash to anyone. In order to comply with the feds, the Lab has to get some information for those forms from you first. The feds then need to cross-check against your tax records to verify that you exist before the Lab can let you withdraw more cash from your account.
