Aloha Friday: Social Security Number

My Question:

Do you give out your SSN to anyone who asks? Does it make you feel uncomfortable to do so?
Check out this article on  
I don't give mine out unless it is for legitimate reasons such as Insurance forms, DMV, Renewing a passport etc. Otherwise I offer to use my driver's license or passport/visa as identification.

  1. No I don't. Identity theft is not something I would be interested in becoming a victim of.

  2. Following you from Friday Follow. I would love for you to follow me too. Have a wonderful weekend!


  3. no I don't! Aloha I want to do the Friday follow too

  4. NO NO ONE gets it unless I'm doing taxes applying for a job or opening a bank acct. THAT'S IT!

  8. Heck no!

    Happy FF and AF!

  9. I'm stopping by to say hi. I'm also following your awesome blog! =)

  10. We do not give Social Security number to anyone unless it is for an official application (like job or taxes). Everything else is not acceptable and if they have a problem I inform them we were identity theft victims. Hubby's information was stolen from who knows where and someone opened up a line of credit. We were lucky that they were stupid and we caught it before they took our a cash advance. Still a nightmare w/locking credit and trying to make sure nothing else was compromised.

  11. Love your blog.Happy Friday follow!Please stop by and say hello.

  12. I won't give unless I am asked ...
    thank u for the interesting question.
    I enjoy your blog.

  14. Following from Friday Follow. And no I don't give out my SSN.

    love the has such a relaxing feeling. I was waiting for some island music to start! =)

    check me out at:

  15. I do not give mine unless I have to and I refuse to give out my children's. The Dr's office will ask and other things but I will not give out theirs. They do not need it.

  16. nope, i do not want people knowing my info...

  17. Absolutely NOT! I'm leery one my own bank asks for it. I don't believe anyone that comments today will say yes! DON'T DO IT!

  18. No we don't give our SSN out.
    It even irritates me when a doctor office asks for it. I have insurance and they do not need it.

  19. Stopping by with Friday Follow. Hope you had a fantastic week.


  20. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm excited to get to know you through your blog! Have a wonderful weekend!! :o)

  21. I don't remember the last time I was asked and I guess that is a good thing. The state I live in gave the option to remove it from our drivers license and I did. It requires more paper work when my license needs renewed but I do feel better not having my number for all to see. Happy Friday!

  22. I hate that so many companies use the SS to identify you. Thanks for supporting Friday Follow. Have a wonderful weekend. Rita @

  23. It doesn't bother me, but of course I'm sensible about it. I used to work in the mortgage industry so I was the one doing the asking.
