We need your SSN to display your monthly credit score, and to provide you with credit monitoring. If you choose to get a credit builder account, then your SSN is needed for credit reporting and loan servicing purposes.

In addition, to help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, and the theft of your identity, Federal law requires all financial service entities to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, tax identification number (social security number or employer identification number), date of birth, and possibly other information that will allow us to identify you.
