My mother-in-law flat out asked me if I received my daughter's ssn yet. I said yes, she said, oh great whenever you get a chance will you give that to me to open an account. My first reaction (in my mind) was, Excuse me?! Well, I don't know about you but I don't want to be passing around my daughter's ssn. This may sound like a very generous act, but she didn't exactly discuss it or ask my husband and i. She is good with her finances and somewhat wealthy, but I feel uncomfortable just handing it over to her. She's such a sweet lady and I don't want her to take it the wrong way, but I felt very uncomfortable when she didn't explain why our what kind of account. I know it may be obvious, but I mean I feel I have the right to know if I'm going to hand over my daughter's ssn. My parents never gave anyone my ssn. They opened my savings account and any grandparents that made bonds spoke with my parents first and didn't open an "account" but more so just the bonds. Am I just being over protective?
