The Social Security number (SSN) is a nine-digit number that the U.S. government issues to eligible workers. The number is used to track an individual's earnings and taxes paid into the Social Security system, and it also provides benefits for retirees, disabled workers, and their families. While the SSN was originally intended for use by the government, it has become a widely used form of identification, and it is now required for tasks such as opening a bank account or applying for a credit card. In addition, many employers require applicants to provide their SSN as part of the hiring process. As a result, the SSN has become one of the most important numbers in an individual's life.
