Why do you need my SSN?

Social Security Numbers are one of the main ways Fig verifies your identity and protects your information. Our website is secure, because we know it's important to feel safe when inputting sensitive personal information.


Think of your SSN as your unique key. Once we have it stored in the system, it will only ever be associated with your unique information, like your name, email address, physical address, and phone number. If ever we get another applicant trying to use your SSN, we can immediately flag that as potential fraud and ensure they don't get accepted and mess with your credit. If this stopped you from applying, get back to the application page here!
