Will the apartment complex be able to tell that I am using a CPN? No. Remember, a CPN uses the same algorithm as a social security number. Moreover, there is no law that requires you to submit a social security card when you provide an application to rent an apartment.
To receive a new S.S. number, you must go to the Social Security Office to make your request. You must complete an application. You must provide a written statement requesting a new number indicating and why you need to change your number.
The CPN number keeps certain personal information private, so it is commonly used by celebrities, government officials and high- level executives. An individual can be issued only one CPN number over a lifetime and the process is typically handled with the assistance of a legal professional.
