Depending on where you live you can have a basic bank account (without all the perks of overdrafts etc) without being employed.  As well as paypal  I think LL accepts Skrill but I don't know if that involves having to have a verified bank account but I would imagine it does

First sorry for all the spelling mistakes, I was tired  lol. But I live in the US and I'm trying this Chime no fee required bank account. I tried Skrill but i couldn't link PayPal to it and yeah I still need a bank account. But thank youuuu, I'll see if this Chime thing works and update this when it's verified. 🙂

Wow, I didn't know that in some countries bank accounts are tied to employment. o_o

Me either and I didn't have this problem a few years ago when I joined SL so the linked bank thing must be new. I just wanted to get back into playing it so hopefully the bank that I have works now, I just want a cute avi 😩

You don't need steady employment to have a bank account, and some accounts are very low fee or no fee.  In fact, if you have a bank account, it may make it more likely you'll find work, as it's an indication to potential employers that you're a steady person.

I too have a PayPal account backed with a bank account as my payment method. So its been like that for a few years (I installed this payment method, when Linden Lab closed the option to buy from third party websites). And they wanted a verified PayPal account back then, too.
