Some of the card providers on WIsewage can review an application even if you do not have a Social Security number. They will ask you for other information, like your passport number or ITIN to determine your identity and your qualifications for an account.
Currently this is available from Waleteros.
The banks will reject an application if they believe that their person has a social security number but has chosen not to reveal it in the application process.
The banks use a service that can verify this information on their behalf. Besides, it would create difficulties for you when you file your taxes if you have used more than one form of identification for managing your finances.
While it is always important to be protective of your SSN, our banks are regulated by stringent rules that hold them accountable for safeguarding your personally identifying information. The banks face severe penalties if they fail to honor this legal requirement. The only time a bank must disclose information about an account holder to the government is when as account holder makes a transfer of more than $10,000. Because none of the cards on WiseWage will permit a person to have that much on deposit, such an event cannot occur.
A routing number is a unique identifier for a bank.
For a transfer of funds to work, both the send and receiving bank need to have their own routing numbers.
A routing number is sometimes called an ABA Number.
Because direct deposit is so much faster, many people prefer to use it as the means to process their paychecks.
See individual cardholder agreement for more information on applicable fees and funds availability.
To do that, you will need to know your card account number and routing number. This information is provided to you when you enroll in a card account. It can also be accessed by signing into your online card account mobile app, or contacting your card account’s customer service. See the back of your card for website and customer service phone number.

Important information for opening a card account: To help the federal government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the USA PATRIOT Act requires all financial institutions and their third parties to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens a card account. What this means for you: When you open a card account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
