The broker must have had an ID number to set up the account.

Since that wasn't done, I can think of two situations that might have occurred:

  1. the trust existed under your cousin's social security number, and now a trust ID is needed.
  2. the trust springs up as a function of her will, and a trust ID is needed.

the account is under my cousin's SS and now the stockbroker wants to open a new account under my name as trustee
and I have to give them my S.S.

Applying for a new ID number is *****

https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/apply-for-an-employer-identification-number-ein-online is the link to IRS web page that will give an EIN within minutes.

You as trustee have the authority to apply for the number.

The number will be issued immediately after completing the questionnaire. Give that to the broker for new account seup.

Thanks for asking at Just Answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'mCustomer
