I know it could be the age but I don't know where to find the birth year. I also know you could send google your proof of birth date but I'm not sure where to send it in?

Hey Saba,

Welcome to adwords community,
It seems Your Google account must have been set to an age under 18 when you created it, so you'll have to follow the steps from this link: http://goo.gl/AxN5E to prove you are over 18 and to re-enable your account.

Hope this helps.

Hey Saba,

Sorry for inconvenience caused.
You can upload your proof at https://support.google.com/adwords/contact/age_verification.
They will verify your age and update it in your Google Account settings so you don't have this problem again. Note that it can take up to 5 business days for us to verify your information and get back to you.

Also, As mentioned in above link. You can verify Performing a small transaction ($0.30 USD) on a valid credit card.

Hope this helps.

Hey Saba,

I strongly recommends to upload your valid proof of age.
You may pay via here. https://wallet.google.com/x/enroll/?flow=wallet&continue=https://wallet.google.com/manage/?pli%3D1

I never tried to verify my age with wallet yet.

But what would my issue come under? As you have to describe the issue to fill out a form? Can't seem to find a suitable description for my issue.
