BECU Credit Union Social Sec. Card requirement

DH trying to join and is being asked for utility and social security card... We can't find it anywhere, send global entry (no) send passport (no) provided mortgage, bank statements, pay stubs, driver license... NOTHING!

I'm like you can't get a passport without a social and it's a federal doc (Banks says I know but our policy, sorry!)

Did he consider just requesting a replacement card online?

Frustrating as it is, I ran into the same thing last year.

Went to the Social Security office with many docs. to get a Copy of my SS cardSmiley Indifferent

I now even have a copy of my birth certificate.

 

To think, I have been given credit for 35 years without any past need of thisSmiley Tongue

When I got my last replacement I was living in one of the handful of states that doesn't offer online requests so I had to go the old-fashioned snail mail route.  Even then it wasn't too bad, though.
