>Ed SeufertI'd like to know what branch of the Internal Revenue Service or Social
Security Administration this NPS BPSO thought he was also employed
by...those are the ONLY two Federal agencies that would legally have any
right to demand your social security number. Insurers do NOT need to have
your SS#, no matter how much they may whine and complain. Same with state,
county and federal law enforcement or motor vehicle departments. They may
ask you, but you don't have to give it to them.
Next time ask him what law permits him to ask such a sensitive question. SS#
misuse is rampant- don't let anybody know it who is not involved with your
taxes, paychecks, or retirement funds. It's the law!
Better yet, don't even play along- just walk away. That's the loudest
protest one can make, besides contacting your senators and representatives.
These events sound as if they are potentially more trouble than they are
worth. Even up here in Massachusetts, the NPS -so far- haven't pulled
anything like this.
