i meant to say, i thought only my employer would need that number. i do indeed know it. ~smile~

If you are talking about completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid -, then yes, she needs to have both your ssn and your husband's ssn in addition to your tax information for 2006.

If she cannot answer "Yes" to any of the dependency questions:

were you born before January 1, 1984
are you a graduate or professional student
do you have children you support
do you have legal dependents
are you an orphan or ward of the court
are you active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces
are you a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces

then she is considered a Dependent student and needs your information to help complete her FAFSA. Once the FAFSA is completed, it will generate and EFC (Expected Family Contribution) that schools use to determine what type of/how much aid a student is eligible for.

If you have further concerns regarding why your ssn is needed you should talk to a financial aid officer at her school for more information/guidance. Good luck!
If you give your daughter your ssn. expect alot of new credit card bills.
