Ask Stash

Why does Stash need my social security number?

Stash takes safeguarding your personal information very seriously—we use it only for identification purposes, and we never perform credit checks.  As a financial service institution, we’re required by law to obtain, verify, and record identification information. In addition, your social security number is needed to prepare an annual tax reporting form for you. If you have any questions about the measures we take to secure your personal information, feel free to contact us.
