Am I reading this MY permit correctly

Hi all. So I'm on the pfbc website and is it really telling me that i need the ssn of my nephew to register him for the MY trout day permit? I don't know it so I'll have to ask if that's really the case. However, requiring a ssn of a minor since there's no drivers license seems extreme for a fishing permit if that's what they're doing. Link I was using is below. First i went to their MY page and clicked on the 'get your permit/license'
http://www.fishandboat.com/Fish/Fish...thProgram.aspx
Then it took me here
https://www.pa.wildlifelicense.com/start.php
I click kn the top choice and im prompted for a cid, drivers license, or ssn.

It's really not that big of a deal. The SSN will need to be given at some point to get a license and that's your CID number for life. I've gotten my son a voluntary youth license and the alternate display button every year since he's been 1. No issues at all with it.

Go to your local court house and get him his CID number and you won't ever have to worry about giving the SSN out again.
Every license he needs hunting or fishing from that point on will go off the CID number.
Your CID number becomes your identification for everything hunting and fishing related.

Thanks for the replies. I just wanted to make sure I was really reading this right before I started asking for SSNs. Thanks

Got my Grandsons 2 weeks ago, didn't think it was a big deal.
Going to have to furnish the SSN in a couple years for the Hunting License.
He now has a CID# for Life.

Typical State red tape b.s.! I was planning to take my son and daughter tomorrow but I'm not going through all of that. I'll just take them next weekend instead. This was another good idea ruined by government incompetence.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to take your 5 year-old son fishing without having to register his social security number with the State? PAFBC and Game Commission are run by imbeciles.

There are some on this site who may remember when you visited your local mom and pop sporting goods store and they would write all your information down on the actual license which had a piece of carbon paper under it so as to make a copy that remained in the book. Where do you think all that information ended up.
My son has had his CID# since he was old enough to walk with me in the woods. Now when I get either my hunting license or fishing license I get his as well. I get my hunting licenses at the court house and I get the fishing licenses via computer. CID# make it very easy and safe.

I dont see the big deal either! Since my kids are now in college it makes it easy for me to pick their hunting/fishing tags when I get mine. By the way, if there is a dad out there who needs a spot to fish tomorrow, I know where certain holes got loaded/overloaded on the Wissahickon.

Camp life,it don't get much better!
