What is an SSN?

Social Security Card

Social Security Numbers (SSNs) are unique nine-digit numbers used to verify a person’s citizenship and identity. They’re used as a form of identification on tax records and give you access to various Social Security benefits.

In order to be able to use your Social Security number, though, you’ll need to prove its legitimacy with a government-issued Social Security card.

If you’re in need of a new one, GOV+ can help you get your replacement card from home.

Reasons you need a Social Security Card

Opening a bank account

A social security card is required to open a bank account. The social security card is used to verify the identity of the account holder while the social security number on the card is used to track the account holder's financial transactions.

Obtaining government benefits

A social security card is required in order to receive social security benefits such as social security, Medicare, or Medicaid. The card includes the individual's name and date of birth while the social security number on the card is used by the government to track an individual's earnings and tax contributions.

Buying a home

Part of the process of buying a home is proving your identity and ensuring that you are who you say you are. One way to do this is to provide a social security card. This document provides proof of your identity and allows lenders to verify your social security number. Without a social security card, it can be difficult to get approved for a loan.

Starting a new job

If you're starting a new job, one of the things you'll need to do is get a social security card. Your social security number is used by your employer to report your earnings to the government, and it's also used to keep track of your retirement and Medicare benefits.
