Why bother? With an internet broker, all you need is the userID and password. I manage 5 account for others, and with none of them have an official trading authorization. 'course, the broker won't talk to me on the phone---guess they can figure out that I'm not my mom.

For me, they woudn't issue the online trading authority until there was an authorization on record. After all, this is a minor's custodial account. Maybe they wouldn't catch it in all cases.
