National requirement for SSN numbers

Recommended Posts

The actual national policy on SSN has just changed. Starting April 1, all adult applications must have a SSN on them.


Scoutnet will actually check to make sure the number is correct. The number is being used to do a nationwide criminal background check. Our council has been doing a three state background check for years, but this system is much more thorough. If you have something that is likely to come up on a background check, make sure you disclose it. I know in our council, we have a lot of leeway when someone comes back with a criminal background but has disclosed it, if something comes up that hasn't been disclosed we start wondering what else this person is hiding.


The number is not required for youth, but is now required for adults.
