Why do you need my personal information like my SSN, Date of Birth, Phone Number and Address?

ID.me may require sensitive pieces of information to verify that you are eligible for a particular benefit and that no one else can claim that benefit by pretending to be you. This is always true for particular high value benefits because of the substantially increased risks of Fraud. To ensure a benefit designated for you is always there when you need or want it we will require enough information to prevent duplication, impersonation or deception as required by the benefit provider. This information is strictly used for verification and fraud prevention purposes to audit and ensure your eligibility. ID.me does not use this information for marketing or re-targeting purposes.
