SSN Poll Results

The polls just closed on the SSN question. Overwhelmingly most people said NO! There is no valid reason for a company to keep you SSN on file. I am a little baffled because there were a couple of you who voted Yes. WHY? I'm having a hard time understanding that. Now I realize that I don't know all the in's and out's of how and why every industry does things the way they do, but I would love to know why you voted yes. Please leave a comment and tell me why.

I was also please to see that the total number of votes increased drastically. I don't know if that means that more people liked this question or if it means that more of you are finding the site or more of you decided to participate. Either way I'm happy.

I'll have another poll up soon.

I voted yes.

But that is fully because I misclicked. :\

I didn't vote, but I would imagine some people just don't care so much about their SSN's because they are everywhere. The SSN has endured abuse and turned into another person description on applications ranging from gym memberships to credit checks.
