Answer Unless you're authorized to secure social security numbers, the only way to obtain them is through illegal activity. Social security numbers are among the… most private of an individual's information. Most local law enforcement personnel are not even authorized to such information. If the numbers you're looking for deal with you or relatives, contact the Social Security Administration.
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 inc…ome is 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.
I became legal in the united states and had a made up social before then
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 c…heck. 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.
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 need the SS# to get the license.
you can but you can get in a lot of trouble with the law
ITIN Number might do
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.
Yes, if you can otherwise legally purchase a handgun, there is no requirement to have a social security number.
Plain and simple....IDENTIFICATION. Like your fingerprints, there are no two alike.
The US will sometimes flag a social security number as a suspected terrorist. Being flagged means you get searched rigorously in airport security. Some airlines will refuse to… fly those who are flagged. Getting flagged happens on pretty flimsy circumstances. If your name is similar to a known terrorist or fugitive, or even sounds similar to the same culture it may be flagged. Once flagged, it is difficult (probably impossible to clear it). Instead a Redress Number is obtained. Airlines who check for social security flags will often accept a redress number in your response.
Social Security numbers were first issued by the Social Security Administration in November 1935, more than 2400 years after Pythagoras died.
You need to get that person and take them to the DPS for a new social security card. Getting a persons social security without their permission is illegal.
It is not the custom of any reliable fact-checking site, including WikiAnswers, to give a person's private information. Anyone's social security number should be kept private …so that scammers and fraudsters don't use it for bad purposes. But if you are asking whether Obama's social security card is from Connecticut, that is an internet myth. And if you are asking whether he is foreign born, that too is a myth: he was born in Hawaii and has an American social security card, probably from whatever state he was living in when got his first job.
Mess things up
You could, but it would be a VERY bad idea. Someone could use it to get a ID with your name. They could then commit a crime and you might be the one arrested.
You can buy a car without a social security number if you purchase it from a private dealer rather than from a car lot. The car lot dealer has to present it legally in ord…er to transfer the title, a private owner does not.
