  • Unless you're trying to hide something, I don't know why it matters.

  • I'm not sue if they will know by your Social security number, but wouldn't they need to know about all the assets you have anyway?

  • I highly suggest not trying to hide anything from them. Not sure if the SSN could give them bank acct information.

  • You would be amazed at what they can find out about you. If you are applying for services such as food stamps or cash assistance you will have to give them your bank information. There is a ton of information in their database. They can tell where you live, what property you own, what cars you own, etc.

  • lying to the federal govt in order to obtain money is fraud and punishable. with your SSN, name, address and birthdate, I can run a credit report and see exactly who you bank with.

  • Yes.
    Anytime you have to use your SSN on an application then it goes into the federal government's system. That means that if they wish to know exactly what you have in your SSN then they can see it.
    When being audited by the IRS, they ask questions that they already know the answers to just to see if you answer honestly or not.
    This is why any government agency asks you for information first, to see if you are honest or not because they will find out the truth anyway.
