Personal Information and Insurance

As a beneficiary on my sister's life insurance policy I am requested to provide: my name, address, date of birth, and social security number to the insurance company and her employer.  Is this normal information that a beneficiary should provide?

Answer:  All the information that you list is normal, but I would personally refuse to provide my Social Security Number. Your Social Security Number can be the object of a lot of fraud and misuse. Unless required by law, I don't give my SSN out.
