I Don’t Have a Social Security Number. Can I Get Life Insurance?
When you put in a life insurance application, the insurance company will likely ask you for your social security number. What do you do if you don’t have an SSN? The first step is to not worry. The next step is to read the rest of this article, where we’ll outline how to get life insurance without an SSN:
Don’t have an SSN? Get an ITIN
While most insurance companies will require a social security number to provide you with coverage, there is a carrier who will only require an individual taxpayer’s identification number (ITIN). You can obtain an ITIN from the IRS through the form W-7. You will generally need an ITIN if you are classified as the following:
- foreign national
- resident alien
The ITIN is largely used for income-tax reporting purposes. The insurance company will ask for an SSN, or accept an ITIN, to make sure that you’re the person that you say you are. This is to protect themselves against insurance fraud.
