NetSpend no Social Security number
Social Security number (SSN) is a nine-digit number issued to US citizens, permanent residents and temporary residents (workers). The main purpose of this number is to track individuals for Social Security and has also become a de facto national identification number for taxation and other purposes.
The use of SSN was first introduced in 1936. Since then the development of SSN usage has greatly improved substantially. SSN is currently the most commonly used numbering system in the United States. In 2008 Social Security Administration (SSA) has issued more than 450 million SSN.
NetSpend is a top-rated prepaid debit card provider in the United States. In the article on the requirement to opening a NetSpend account, you are not required to have SSN; you simply provide your name, address and email address. The non-necessity of SSN in making the NetSpend account is due to the nature of the card that must be filled with money first, so violations are infrequent.
So for those of you who do not have SSN you can register a NetSpend account and enjoy the benefits they offer.
