Question #11650329

After 6 years my broker suddenly needs my social insurance number - is that weird?

I've held the same shares (with dividends) for six years without making any changes to them. I've never had trouble filing my taxes. All of a sudden, after 6 years, I get a letter in the mail from them asking only for my social insurance number for tax purposes. Is this a scam or legit? The company is Computershare. How come they suddenly need my SIN for tax filing when they didnt need it for six years?
