SSN in rental application?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I put my SSN(not the copy of the card, just the number) in rental application, at that time I didn`t think about leaving it just blank(dumb me) and now I`m concerned if it can be used in a bad way.

I mean can they anyhow damage me using my SSN ?

Yes, in order to actually have a rental application complete, you will need to provide the SSN. Most of the advice against providing the SSN should be interpreted as not providing one until you are for sure interested in applying for that particular apartment (i.e. you are also submitting the credit check fee etc. if there is one)
