    SSN field issues - requiring an email address be entered?

    Asked by thecinster on August 09, 2011 at 07:34 AM


    Please see below thread for issue we are having with the SSN field.

    Thank you.

    Aloha Cindy,


    This is the 3rd report over the same issue with the SSN field. Please see below.


    I attempted to replicate the error with the 2nd report, however, there was no issue. The field accepted the SSN as it should. Perhaps it is a specific key or character that is triggering the error?

    In entering the information on your on-line application form, the box to input a social security number exhibits an error and requests an email address. It will not let you close the form unless the email address is entered.

    For privacy reasons I modified your question and removed the information of the applicant from text and screenshot.

    I checked the form and I do not see any validation for the SSN field. So, this should not have happened. Can you ask the application which type and version of browser he/she is using?
