Yes, obviously. I don't want the government tracking my purchases or where I send money based on that social security number. Obviously, we use social security numbers to provide to banking institutions, but if I am paying back my friend for $20 he or she spent at dinner, the government doesn't need to track that.

You do realize the government gave you your SS number, don't you?

re: Google Invites Users To Send Money Via Gmail
Maybe it's because I have yet to fully embrace any mobile banking app or function, but I am still extremely wary of sending money over the Internet. I am even more cautious about sending via email, and I would certainly be uncomfortable providing my social security number to Google, especially if it is for U.S. governmental requirements. What is Google doing to ease these concerns for users?
