Once you are hired you have to provide I9 documents and for most people that is Drivers license and Soc Security card. I find it odd they want the card before the job offer.

When I was running a construction company, we always asked for the I9 stuff early - it got to the point that enough people couldn't produce it when hiring time came around that we got tired of wasting our time. As a result, unless they could prove they were eligible, we wouldn't even interview. However, that was an industry and jobs FAR different from an Admin. Asst. position. I think in the OP's case, it sounds like a good thing - an offer may be imminent!

No idea. Best you follow up with a question, "what for?"

It's odd that they ask since a SS card is only one of the optional documents to meet I9 requirements- and the employer can not ask specifically for the SS card for the I9.

However they can require it after hire for only payroll purposes.

it what companies do when they hire people, not just one, all of them, its federal law
