Social Insurance NumberA Social Insurance Number (SIN) is a nine-digit number used for the purposes of government programs such as paying taxes on monies earned, paying into government pension plans, using government services and receiving benefits. You must have a Social Insurance Number to work in
Employers must verify the SIN card in order to pay an employee. A bank may also request a SIN when applying for certain investments which may generate an amount in interest earned which must be reported to the government.
The SIN is not an identification card and should never be used as such. Keep your card in a safe place and your number confidential. It should only be given to the appropriate federal government departments or financial institutions as required.
