Good morning Barbara,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

As I don’t have access to your social security records I cannot provide a definitive answer to your question. However, experience tells me that Social Security will make a soft pull on your credit record when you sign up with them on line for a "My Social Security" account, to allow you to access your social security information on line. This is done just to verify your identity and does not have a negative effect on your credit because it is not a hard pull which would be used to provide you credit.

I seem to recall that the SSA uses the Experian credit site to do this soft pull.

If you did not establish a "My Social Security" account with SSA, perhaps you asked for something else from SSA that would have necessitated them verifying your identity---such as you requesting a replacement card from SSA for MediCare. Any sort of a request online to the SSA could generate a decision to verify your identity. This is relatively common and nothing to be concerned about.

Please keep in mind that, even though you have already paid your deposit money over to JustAnswer, until you rate me highly for my service, I will not be paid for having assisted you with your questions.

If you have additional questions, you may of course reply back to me and I will be happy to continue to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction.

I wish you and yours the best in 2014,

Doug
