Why does Travelex ask for so much information like Date of Birth and Social Security Number?

Answer

We understand that you’re not used to being asked for this information when ordering over the internet. Because Travelex deals with money, they're subject to rules and regulations similar to banks. They're required by federal law to collect this information to prevent possible money laundering, funding of terrorism, and fraud. Don’t worry, your information is kept strictly confidential and is protected with their 128-bit SSL encryption software.
