    Here in Texas, a person's SS# is REQUIRED in order to get a hunting or fishing license. What is the purpose of that? SS# is not for ID as it states that on the SS card issued by the government. With all the problems nowadays of ID theft, why does everyone want a SS#? I refuse to do so and never give it to anyone on the phone, but it is ridiculous to use that number. The state could just a easy print a sequence number on the license and use that. More government intrusion. Bah!

    Here the state allows you a choice: an ID number or your social. Used to be just the social until problems started arising.

    I agree with you. I refuse to give it out, even to a doctors' office, specially if I'm paying then and there for the service. Makes them hopping mad, too.:D

    Drives me nuts too, that banks don't ask for picture ID anymore, just have you run your debit card.

    In Colorado they use the ss# to check for bad support payments as well as
    other illegal activities.It does not show up on the issued license.
