God I wish there was a similar opp in the UK.

I'm a graphic designer trying to make the leap into aviation and it's near on impossible, barely any open days accessible for people with no previous experience!

The Social Security program was started back in the 1930s. You are given a lifetime number upon registration. (Used to register upon adulthood, they now expect babies to be registered) During your life, you pay a SS tax and your employers match it. At 62 you can begin to draw a pension. If you wait until you are 66 the pension will be larger, and if you wait until 70, it will max out.

Problem is, it is a "ponzi scheme" that depends on there being more taxpayers in the future than there were in the past to work. Hidden problem with "outsourcing" (as in to India) is that the workers there don't pay into US SS so the American workers paying in today might not be able to draw their pensions. Also Congress has borrowed against the money so many times over the years that it is hard to say how much money the system has.

Anyway, the SS account number comes very close to being a national identity number for a person. It is your taxpayer ID number, your military service number, pilot license number (except for us old timers with an actual license number) and in some states it might be your driver's license number.

No one may employ you unless they pay taxes including the SS tax to the account bearing that number. Probably the reason you need to bring it to an interview is to prove you are not an illegal alien.

Off topic, I know, but its not just old timers. They're giving the kids new pilot numbers these days.

Most states have discontinued the use of SSNs as license numbers due to concerns about identity theft or identity fraud. Essentially, Social Security cards are useless as proof of citizenship due to the ability of anyone to reproduce them and the ability create false identities through access to public records.
