Is it safe to email your ssn?

I am an independent contractor and a client has requested my ssn and address for their 1099. Is it safe to email this info. to them?

No, I would never send my social security number over the internet. Nor would I give it to someone over the phone that called me. I would take the number and then call them back in a couple of minutes.

Never email SS number. Hackers can intercept your email & use your SS number. Best to use the fax machine or provide it over the phone.

Get a tax ID number so u dont have to give out your SS to different people. Safer that way
