CPF is a document that identifies a taxpayer at the Federal Internal Revenue Department. The CPF carries registration information supplied by the individual and by the Federal Internal Revenue Department database.

Each individual can register a single time and consequently have an unique CPF number.

CPF stands for "Cadastro de Pessoas Fisicas (Individual Taxpayer Registry.) It is a document that any person- Brazilian or not, living in Brazil or not - needs if he/she wants to purchase real estate, a vehicle, a vessel, an aircraft, stock share, to have a banking account, financial or capital market investments.

The only common thing between CPF number and SSN is that it is assigned only one for each individual person.
