Beatriz Gatto
Taxpayer Identification Number
Explanation:
This is the most idiomatic for a US audience. It also applies to the equivalent for legal entities - the CGC or (now) the CNPJ.

Some people use Individual [or Personal] Taxpayer ID No. and Corporate Taxpayer ID number but there's no reason to so this. Both are TAxpayer Identification Number, Taxpayer ID Number, or TID in IRS documents.

Registration/enrollment in the Tax Roll of Natural Persons/individuals


Explanation:
In this context CPF refers to the registry where natural persons are registered in order to obtain an identification code and not to the identification code for taxing purposes assigned by such registry.

If you find CPF followed by a number, then it refers to the Identification Number for taxing purposes.

social security number


Explanation:
if it is refering to some benefits the person will receive from the government such as health, medicines, medicare, etc it is Social Security Number.

If it is for taxes purpose it would be taxpayer ID number. Usually, tax id # is the same as SSN for residents or citizens; someone that does not have a SSN may request a Tax ID number.

disagree  M.Badra: Not in Brazil. CPF is the individual tax payer identification number, and only it. You need a CPF number in order to claim social security benefits, but in Brazil you have a separate SSN number.

agree  Pedro Monteiro: A TIN is either a SSN, an ITIN (used in the U.S. by those who don't have a work permit), and an EIN. A Social Security Number (SSN) is used by american citizens like a CPF by Brazilians.
