Adding authorized users without Social Security Number?

Postby timsta2006 » Thu Apr 07, 2011 10:16 am

I want to add authorized users to my credit card account, but without giving details like their SS#. Is there a way to do this? Thanks

You should be able to add an authorized user with a Social being required. People get secondary cards in other names all the time and without providing a SS#.

Have you tried to do it yet or were you asking first?

American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More

I did this about two weeks ago actually and the phone rep never asked for the new cardholder's social security number.
