Social Security Number
A Social Security number (SSN) is an individual's nine-digit persoanl identification number issued to all U.S. citizens at birth, permanent residents, and temporary (working) residents. The Social Security Administation issues all social security numbers.

The Social Security number was originally designed to help the IRS collect taxes, but over time, the use of this number has been expanded, making it a de facto national identification number.
