Why does Stash need my social security number?
There are two main reasons we need your Social Security number:
- The Patriot Act requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person opening an account.
- Stash issues all clients a tax reporting form at the end of the year and we need your SSN to do this.
Your Social Security number is only used to verify your identity. Stash does not perform a credit check.
