Dear Bird Talk,

Our friends got a U.S. Social Security number. When I asked them what the advantages of having a U.S. number were, they simply said they thought it was a good idea. Are there advantages of a Snowbird having a U.S. Social Security number? Do you recommend it?

Thanks,
Dave Michael

Response:
Canadians can no longer obtain Social Security Numbers. If they have a reason, such as the sale of property they own in the United States, they can obtain a TIN (Tax Identification Number) – Wallace Weylie, CSA Legal Counsel
