I was reading the requirements of the following correspondence when it occurred to me that it reads as follows; must have a "Taxpayer Identification Number " please note what I am saying "Taxpayer Identification Number " it does not say "Social Security Number" an individual can apply for a TIN or "Taxpayer Identification Number " even if one has a "Social Security Number" as a matter of fact I believe that was the requirement for those working
in the public sector this way you kept an arms length distance between you as a private sector individual and the public side which deals with the UNITED STATES bankrupt CORPORATION where by you received benefits and privileges. If you are a business employer for the bankrupt corp.., then you get an employers identification number or EIN as some might recognize it, so we have the SSN; TIN and EIN.
The SSN is for private persons asking for government assistance, the TIN for dealing with the IRS and other corporations and the EIN when acting a corporate individual although that area seems a bit shady.
so you must point out
to the financial institution that you do not have a TIN yet and that you will apply for one as quickly as possible, butt don't give out your SSN, just apply for and attempt to get a TIN then you can apply for your EIN... also when dealing with the IRS use your TIN that's what it was designed for in the first place. At least this has been my understanding.
