>I just turned 18 and live in teh state of Maryland

I had the same problem a while seemed I had a 50/50 shot at it...

I did get lucky with one phone call though...a gentleman at E*Trade used to live in state and confirmed that the age is 18 for CT...the key term you need to know is the "age of majority." Apparently it's different depending on the state. I found that even the neighborhood brokers and lawyers were confused on the subject (yeah, I made a few phone calls).

Hope this helps!
