Requesting social security number

I am just aghast at how many potential employers are demanding my social security number to be simply entertained for a potential job. I will not provide my social security number unless there is a job offered. I already have had two attempts in the last two months at identity theft. A potential employer is not going to offer me any assistance if my social is stolen and I now have to deal with that after being unemployed since November of last year.

I have only been asked for a social security to conduct pre-employment background check.

They're not requesting your social security number for their entertainment in moron they're requesting your Social Security number so that way they can properly identify you for who you are and make sure you don't have a criminal history so if you fail to provide them with your social security number they cannot run a background check and then offer you the job

Bob My title is SIR- I guess

Do not trust Social Security they tried to sucker me into accepting lesser payments when I retire, and refused to say whether or not it is legal for employers to demand my age and social numbers saying only "it varies from state to state".

Bob like how old are you for real.... Social Security does direct deposit and have been for yrs. Next any employer will be able to figure out your age when you fill out the application. Like DID YOU GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL.... DATE OF BIRTH AND DD214 ARE YOU A VET.... Come on man... you're not going to start this on a job site are you. When you apply for a job you gotta fill out a W-2 IRS form.... Where do you get this stuff from. Get off of jobcase and move over to "MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AND HELP" website. Right now I am guessing that you need it. This is JOBCASE!!! And please folks don't enter into this nonsense with this man.

I got discontinued from my job last year after working for them for 10 years. I am 63 and have been looking for work ever since March 2016. First my unemployment ran out then my savings - now I am on Social Security but it is not enough to live on. I have no insurance and was told I am a Diabetic 3 day after I lost my job. I have been looking for an Accounts Payable job or any office job which is what I did before. I just recently moved to KC,MO because there were no jobs where I lived before. I do not have an established network. Can anyone help me out. I can do just about anything and will forward a resume if you think you can help me.

Hi Diana: I'm sorry to hear about your struggles in finding a job - is your Social Security similar to disability benefits? If not, I would apply for disability right away to help bolster your income, since having diabetes means you qualify for disability. Also, have you been following up on all the applications you’ve submitted? Try calling or emailing employers a few days after you’ve applied. It’s a great way to stand out from the online crowd.

Choice to make

I am receiving SSDI, and I want to work full-time as a means to become self-sufficient without financial and medical insurance support of the Social Security Administration. The problem is I may have to take a part-time position and risk earning just enough to be above the SGA (Substantial Gainful Activity) as described by the SSA and the Ticket To Work Program. On the one hand, if monthly earnings remain below $1,130, then SSDI monthly payments will remain intact, however, I have already accumulated two months of excess earnings toward my nine month trial period which means I have a total of seven in which earnings may exceed the SGA over a five year period.

For me, working full-time without the benefits of Social Security is the ultimate gift of accomplishment

Hello Edward, Thank you for being a part of our Jobcase community! I think that is a wonderful goal to have! I do not have any good insight to help you with this decision, but would be happy to assist you with a job search. Please just let me know what sort of positions you are interested in and I can take a look.

If I understand your predicament correctly you have 9 months, grace period, to test if your able to maintain employment without risking a deduction or loss to your disability benefits. If you accept a part time job during your grace period (9mo) you risk being able to try a full time position without losing your disability benefits if one becomes available past the grace period. I think the key here is honestly determining how well you will be able to take on the day to day responsibility and duties associated to a full time position. Use the remaining months to seek out and test your full time job goal. You can always go back to the part time option and remain below the income limit of your unable to find FT or maintain FT work.

Yes, at a group hiring event in which I was hired. All documents had to be presented ( signed application, ID, resume, and SSN card).

You should have been told you were hired before handing over your social security card. The only time they should be collecting your Social Security card is if they are making a copy for I9 verification. That is only done if they offer you a job. If you are wondering if you got the job and they aleready have copies of your personal information, you may want to give them a call.

Is this with a reputable company in your area?

Are Disability checks offten don't cover our bills and we are having to find work just so we can live but question when we do by SSI if we do find something sometimes our checks are taken and it makes it even harder just added on stress we don't need and offten told no ur not allow to work witch make living for us harder and we have to run to family and friends for help making feel like crap for asking trust me I've had to do it many times I don't know about u but I feel low when having to ask for help make people wonder if we can really make it on our own try for the work ticket or even find a job that pays under the table but those don't pay very much bc with under the table job u pretty much have to take whatever they give u and that sucks bc people alot of times take advantage of that I live on my disability and hardly make it that's why I'm here bc I Kno it's hard living with a disability u should get the work ticket SSI won't hound u and bills get paid and less stress on u and that's what is about we have enough baggage stress just make it heavier

If I could just decide

Like most of you I am job hunting. I went on social security disability in 2003, had multiple surgeries which caused more pain and problems but finally had reconstructive surgery in 2016. It has lessened my pain so I feel like I can work a little to supplement my income. I’m blessed to have a wonderful husband who has been responsible for most of the bills but now I want to help ease his stress. Here’s my dilemma. Because of the income restrictions ss has( and I’m not saying they shouldn’t) I can only make a small amount of money. I have a job currently working from home but I get yelled all day by clients. I have an extensive background in customer service and HR so that’s my wheelhouse. My problem is do I look for just a job or do I get in PT in a position that leads to advancement down the line if in fact I can physically come off ss and work full-time? I am also deciding about WAH and brick and mortar. I can’t lose my benefits until I’m sure I can in fact work but having a good income would make my husband’s life easier. I’ll take advice from anyone that wants to reply but please do not accuse me of milking the system. I don’t have to work, I want to work. BTW. I am 52 and aware that my age and gaps in employment since I got hurt will be red flags. Thanks for reading.

I recommend working part time with later advancement, until are physically ready. Look into Sykes, upwork or guru.com for work from home positions. You also do some temp positions in the meantime.

About leaveing my job.

There is a good chance in May of this year I will quite my job and start to draw my S/S. I will turn 66. I will be livening off my S/S mainly. I can make it. But it will be tough. My work place with out going into to much detail. Is a very toxic, stressful and etc place to work for. So my question is this. If I decided to say look/get a nother job. Say three, six and etc months down the road. What does even one think I should put on the job application why I lefted my previous job.

No problem Terence. It's actually pretty common that retirees decide they still want to work. It doesn't raise red flags.
