Question: Can a employer ask for my age and social security number on an online application before I have been offered job and hired?
Answer: Anyone can refuse to disclose his or her Social Security number, but the requester can refuse its services if you do not give it. Businesses, banks, schools, private agencies, etc., are free to request someone's number and use it for any purpose that does not violate a federal or state law. (ssa.gov) There is no law against asking someone's age on an application. You may want to go to www.eeoc.gov for more information on age discrimination.
