    It depends on a lot of different things. It depends on why you were limited, but it also depends on what country you're in. In the UK for instance, you'll need to provide proof of residence by providing a phone bill, a utility bill, a lease or your council tax bill. In the United States, I'm not sure if they'll just let you use an ID. If your account was limited for tax reasons, they might ask for your social security. It depends on a lot of things.

    it all depends on why your account was limited in the first place

    As i know - if you were limited because you made a lot of transfers and received a lot of money they can request your SSN.

    PayPal isn't a bank and isn't regulated like one, which means that they can basically ask you for your first-born child in exchange for money that's rightfully yours.

    You should probably consider yourself lucky that they only asked for a SSN and not three pints of fresh unicorn blood.
