Recently I was asked to provide my SSN # for something that was not appropriate and I told them to pound sand. So to be a better educated consumer I was looking for members to post tips and advice from SSA and other government sources about not suing the SSN as a primary identifier. Your doctor office will probably always ask for it. So please list what you find to properly respond to those that ask for it. I found there was reference to the 9/11 commission on limiting giving out replacement cards. Also with the "real id act of 2005" thing should change.
