I got call from recruiter and he said I should give him my SSN in order to apply to job.

From his email:

As part of our disclosures and to present you as a qualified Candidate to [Company Name], your full Social Security number will be supplied to [Company Name]. This is a requirement of [Company Name] prior to any engagement with any Candidate.

I have doubts, because I was never asked it before when applying.

Is it normal?
