What can I use for my proof of Social Security Number?

  • Updated

Here is a comprehensive list of documents that can serve as valid proof of Social Security Number: 

  • Social Security Card
  • Paystub (must be within the last 90 days)
  • W-2 (up to 3 years prior)
  • 1099 (last 2 years). Any type of 1099 will suffice
  • In cases where none of the above are available, the client can fill out an IRS Form W-9 in their place. 

Ensuring that your proof of identification is current and in line with the specific requirements of the institution or agency you are dealing with is essential.
