NOTICE regarding social security number: You are required by state and federal law to disclose your social security number on this application. Section 666(a)(13) of Title 42, United States Code, requires each state to obtain the social security number of each applicant for a professional or occupational license on the application for the license. Section 626.171(6), Florida Statutes, implements this federal law. The purpose of collecting social security numbers is for administration of the child support enforcement provisions of Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. The Department of Financial Services also uses social security numbers for identity verification purposes in conjunction with background checks of applicants and for identity verification purposes in the Department’s electronic database for licensees and applicants.
NOTE: When entering your address, you MUST provide a physical street address. POST OFFICE BOX is not an acceptable address and will cause a delay in your examination data being transmitted to FL DFS. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the FL Department of Financial Services.
