U.S. Social Security Number


Disclosure of your U.S. social security number is mandatory on the application. Section 30 of the Business and Professions Code and Public Law 94-455 (42 USCA 405©(2)(C)) authorize collection of your social security number. Your social security number will be used exclusively for tax enforcement purposes, for purposes of compliance with any judgment or order for family support in accordance with Section 17520 of the Family Code, or for verification of licensure or examination status by a licensing or examination entity which utilizes a national examination and where licensure is reciprocal with the requesting state. If you fail to disclose your social security number your application for initial licensure will not be processed AND you will be reported to the Franchise Tax Board, which may assess a $100 penalty against you.

Be advised that an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) issued by the IRS or an Alternate Identification Number (AIN) issued by the FSBPT CANNOT be used in lieu of an SSN.

If you submit an application to the Board without a valid U.S. Social Security Number your application will be returned to you.

Please do not call the Board for information on how to obtain a U.S. Social Security number. Call the Social Security Administration at (800) 772-1213.
