Alternate Identification Number

Alternative to Social Security Number

If you are an exam candidate and cannot obtain a Social Security Number (SSN), an Alternate Identification Number (AIN) will be assigned to you when you create your account. You can create your account in the Customer Login area.


Before You Proceed

The issuance of an AIN is solely for registering for FSBPT services when a candidate cannot obtain an SSN. The AIN is not a substitute for an SSN for any other purpose. Candidates will be notified of their assigned AIN and FSBPT ID by email upon issuance, generally within two business days of receipt at FSBPT.

Candidates with an AIN who subsequently receive an SSN must update their account with FSBPT. To do so, candidates can securely upload their Social Security card to FSBPT at www.fsbpt.org/ainupdate.
