Tax ID number vs. SS Number
Hello, I had some credit card accounts opened under my tax id number as I didn't have a SS number yet. I closed those accounts that were under my tax ID. I plan on reopen them under my SS number.

Does anyone know when I go to open the "same" credit cards under my SS number it will be denied because I had one open before, but it was under a tax ID number? Or, does cards opened under a tax ID get reported under my new SS number when I received the SS number?

Thank you for any insight
