Social Security Number - Online Form Info

Why is my social security number being requested?

When filling out the Online Rental Application, your social security number is requested because it is required in order for an applicant to rent an apartment or duplex.

The social security number is used to properly identify the applicant so that payments can be legally and correctly acquired and possible adverse situations can be avoided.

However, due to the circumstances of this application being online, privacy is obviously an important concern. For this reason, the social security number field in the Online Rental Application form may be omitted, or left blank.

If this field is omitted, and Shriver Rental Properties choose to accept your Rental Application, you will be contacted in order to acquire your social security number through an alternate method, since this information is still necessary to complete the rental application process.
