An online service that helps investors verify their Social Security numbers and the company behind it has published a guide to ensure your financial information is secure.
As of May 1, HFC Securities has published the HFC Secure Security Guide, which helps investors with a basic understanding of how the Social Security Administration’s Secure Transmission of Information Act (SSTIA) works and the process by which a company can submit a security code for verification.
The guide explains the process for each company and how to apply the code in order to verify a Social Security Number, whether it’s your own or someone else’s.HFC Securities’ Secure Security Guides offer some basic information about how to get the most out of your social security number.
The guide does not offer a list of companies to buy from, nor does it include a list for how much you can expect to pay.
If you are looking to buy stocks in a company with a high profile, it may be a good idea to apply for a Social Signatures and Trusts (SSN) card.
That way, the company that sent the security code can track your information and send you a statement if you get into trouble.
If not, you can buy stock through a broker.
Hefc Securities is not the only broker offering a security card to investors.
Many online brokers offer stock trading and the brokerage industry’s first-ever security card is a secure one.
