Therefore, if you receive phone calls from 406 area code telephone numbers requesting personal information, hang up. Do not give your personal information to someone who calls, emails, or texts you. It could be a scammer trying to steal your information.

Some organizations may need your Social Security number to identify you. Those organizations include the IRS, your bank, and your employer. Organizations like these that do need your Social Security number won’t call, email, or text you to ask for it.

Other organizations that might ask you for your Social Security number might not really need it. Those organizations include a medical provider, a company, or your child’s school. Ask these questions before you give them your Social Security number:

  • Why do you need it?
  • How will you protect it?
  • Can you use a different identifier?
  • Can you use just the last four digits of my Social Security number?
