Guard Your Social Security Number

Only give out your Social Security number when absolutely necessary. Don't write it on a check or carry your card in your wallet. If a business asks for your Social Security number, they may just want it for record-keeping purposes. Do your best to assess their need for it before sharing. Ask:

  • Why do you need it?
  • How will it be used?
  • How do you protect it from being stolen?
  • If I don't want to give you my Social Security number, is there an alternative we can use?

It's up to you. Protect it as much as you can.
