Why do you need my Social Security number?

Federal law (USA PATRIOT Act) requires us to obtain, verify and record certain information including your first name and last name, verifiable U.S. street address (no P.O. Boxes or business addresses), date of birth, the last four digits of Social Security number, and other information that will allow us to identify you, the accountholder. We may also ask for your driver's license or other identifying documents at any time. These requirements assist us in verifying your identity and help prevent fraud.
