Am I required to give out my Social Security Number?

Social Security Number Confidentiality 

The 76th Legislature passed HB 692, which states in part: “The social security number of an applicant for or holder of a license, certificate of registration, or other legal authorization issued by a licensing agency to practice in a specific occupation or profession that is provided to the licensing agency is confidential and is not subject to disclosure under the open records law.”

The law was passed in the House on March 18 and in the Senate on May 17 and went into effect after being signed by Governor George W. Bush on May 29, 1999.

Therefore, NO you do not have to reveal your Social Security Number.
