Where did Turbo Tax get the number for my panret's unearned income credit?

For Form 8615, Tax for Certain Children Who 2018 Have Unearned Income, I'm not sure what this is or why you need my parent's SSN? Where did you get this number? What's going on?

Form 8615 https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8615.pdf  kicks in when a person under the age of 18 or going to college and under the age of 24 gets a sufficiently large amount of unearned income, e.g. interest and dividends or stock sales. (See

for more precision.)

In most cases "large" is more than $2,100.  A parent's name and social security number is required on form 8615.  I do not know where, if any place, that info was obtained.  But you will need it and correctly entered as per the instructions cited earlier.
