Always assess the importance of the number
you are giving. If you really don't need the service that much and it isn't
involved in finances just for tracking purposes (This sounds terrible but) just
make one up. Change the last number or use your great grandfather's number, so
no one can trace it to you for malicious purposes. Just remember the number you
used for the next time you need it.
For financial transactions I STRONGLY
advise against this, as the number you make up could turn out to be someone
else's. Also If they do check the # you could be in trouble for what you are
trying to protect. But to pick up a "special savings" card without check writing
privileges at your local grocer (or the NSH for that matter). Give them the
number of someone that has been dead for 50 years.

Dear All: Just would to point out that your SSN is
required for the following in your every day life: phone bills, electric
bills, gas bills, any kind of credit card to include department stores, Visa,
etc, just about any account you may have at a bank, savings loan, credit
union, any transactions online involving money, things like internet providers
as AOL, etc. Why would one less thing like NSH make any possible
difference? Has President Bush ever considered that almost everything in your
life depends on the SSN? Just my thoughts on the subject.
