Customer Question

I know that this is not likely possible but I am wondering if there is any legal way to get rid of your social security number since I won't need it or want it in the future.

Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question.
Generally, a private individual cannot cancel his social security number. There is an exemption, however, on religious grounds if you or your employer fits the criterion.
