Wife SS# Required for Husband Name Only?

Answered by: 

Question: 
Husband approved for home equity loan - in HIS NAME ONLY. Deed ownership in HUSBAND & WIFE, Both sign the mortgage and right to cancel. Identified her with a PA Drivers License. My supervisor wants her SS# too. (Wife is not a client of the bank or a borrower). Is the wife obligated to share her SS# with us?
Answer: 

A person is never "obligated" to share their SSN. Sharing is always a choice. Whether you need it is the real question. Why do you need it?
