I am looking closely into ATP, and will hopefully be starting within a few months pending certain loan issues. My question is this. There is an option to “Decline to submit” your SS# on the 8500-8. Frankly, as a matter of privacy, I would love to not have to give out my social more than I have to, but I also don’t want it to affect my application for the 1st class. I know according to the FAA it is not a disqualifier, but will it look bad with your AME even if it isn’t for any other reason than privacy? Basically, should I put my social on the 8500-8, or is it not a big enough deal that I can avoid giving out that information more than I need to? Thanks!
