2 methods:

You can either create an additional fill for the text object using the appearance panel. Then apply Effect > Convert to shape > Rectangle and whatever opacity you wish

Or, with an area text you can select the area using the direct selection tool, then apply white fill and opacity.

Also for the area text you might want to add padding in the area text options.
