Why does the bankruptcy court need my social security number?
When a person files for bankruptcy, their Social Security Number (SSN) is often requested by the bankruptcy court. This can be concerning to many people who are filing and may be wondering why the court would need such personal information.
The use of a SSN in bankruptcy proceedings is regulated by the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, which states that it is necessary to provide this information in order to identify debtors on official records. The SSN also helps the court verify whether any additional debts have been omitted from the filing or if there has been any other fraudulent activity associated with the case. In addition, it helps to ensure that all creditors receive notification of the filing as required by law.
