Home address to age of 18? What does it mean


I am applying for a position in the UK and for Deloitte, the application form asks me for my address. However, I don’t get what it’s really asking for…one says permanent address and the other asks me “Is your contact address also your home address to age 18?”

What does this mean? To me, it sounds like it’s asking me “where did you live until you turned 18 and give us that address”
Which seems pointless because…I don’t live there and someone else does now.

What exactly is this address?


Hi, if it’s asking for your old address, I would just put this in anyway. I’m not really sure why they would ask this, unless perhaps they do background checks since it’s a financial company?
