Welcome to our community.

Nothing to worry. It is normal for a company to ask for your ssn. As it is you have already given the number. Be on your guard. Assess your credit report quarterly when you feel that you might face a fraud.

However next time onwards stay alert and do not give in your ssn when it can be avoided. In case of a job interview tell them that you would not be able to give out such personal information but will definitely provide it once you are hired.


All the best for your Job. Smile

You can put a fraud alert or freeze on your credit report, contact a credit reporting agency to do so. Like Laura said, stay on top of your credit report.

I think you'd only need to worry if the job/company itself did not seem legit.

I believe you can also request a taxpayer ID number from the IRS to use in place of your SSN for job apps...this number looks like a SSN, but DO NOT use it for credit applications (google "file segregation").

Taxpayer ID is a great suggestion. It dint come to me. Do you think these corporate houses will accept this number instead of the ssn?

I don't believe they have a choice. While any given manager at any given company may not know how to apply it, the HR department should be able to guide them through the process.
