Actually you can through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).. Answer . It is not likely that a lender would grant a loan to a person whose sole income i…s from Social Security benefits of any type.. From the economic standpoint it would not be feasible for someone to use SS benefits for the purchase of a home unless they could put down a very large downpayment or had other sources of income.
Why would you want one? You want the one that has all your work experience registered against it. Another answer: If you are asking the question because you lost yours, con…tact the Social Security for a duplicate of your lost card. If it's a case of identity theft, again, contact the SS office for advice.
Yes they do
You should have been issued a social security card early in life, if you were born in the US. If you are an immigrant, you would receive it when you receive citizenship. It wi…ll show your number. If you have lost yours, you should go to the social security office to apply for a replacement card.
Only if you are borrowing money from them. Some dealers will tell you it's for homeland security reasons and it's the "law" - even if you are paying with a cashier's check.… That is nonsense. They want your SSN to do a credit check to see what your ability is to pay and how much so they can try to sell you a higher priced car. If they insist, demand that they cite the law. They won't be able to. Walk out and take your business to a dealer that does not employ liars.
Referring to the application process of colleges and universities, typically you do not need a social security number. For individuals who do not have one, the institution wil…l generate a student identification number. However, if you are a permanent resident or US citizen and wish to apply for financial aid assistance, you will have a problem.
For financing - yes. To buy outright - no. At least that is here in NY. You don't need a SS# to title or register a vehicle here. However - you do need a license and you n…eed the SS# to get the license.
I don't know much about it, but I can tell you that that doesn't sound like a very good idea. It sounds pretty insecure to me. All information is stored on the internet at one… point, and a hacker may be able to access such information. That's just me though.
you can but you can get in a lot of trouble with the law
First three numbers is the geographical area.. Next two numbers is the group number. They start with odd then do even, not in a consecutive order.. The last four is the seri…al number from 0001 to 9999.. Unfortunately not that interesting or intuitive, kind of random numbers picked for each person.
ITIN Number might do
you SSN is yours for life. It does not expire!
If you are bringing more than $10,000 in cash (US or foreign cash, which does not include any kind of check or electronic transfer) to a bank for any reason, including to buy …a cashiers check, in one or more related transactions, the bank must file a Currency Transaction Report (CTR) which includes your Tax ID number (SSN for most people). You can see a copy of the report here: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/ffc104.pdf Since the rules about "related transactions" and evading the reporting requirements are so nebulous, banks often report somewhat smaller amount to be on the safe side. And a bank is required to file a Suspicious Activity Report for a transaction of any size that they deem to be suspicious. They need an SSN for that, too. Other than that, there is no law requiring them to gather SSNs for cashiers checks. However, they are free not to do business with you if you refuse to cooperate and you are free to go somewhere else if they make unreasonable requests. There is a lot of misinformation about the reporting requirements. The reason is that banks and casinos are subject to different rules than any other type of business. You will often read on the web (and elsewhere) claims that banks must report any transaction greater than $10,000. That is not true. Only currency transactions (not checks, not money orders, not wire transfers) need to be reported, unless they are a suspicious transaction. Rules for some other types of businesses require a broader range of transactions to be reported.
It provides like an Identification Card that will verify a certainperson's identity and that he or she is under the protection of thegovernment. This is because a Social Secur…ity Number is a codeallocated by the government of the United States to its workingresidents, citizens, immigrants, and other voluntary members. Andthis code is very significant to quite a few government connectionssuch as claiming pensions, paying taxes, and retirementreimbursements among other things although people are not commandedto have one.
Usually it is a "National Insurance Number" or NIN, which is in fact made up of letters and numbers. Google National Insurance Number if you need more info.
