Social Security numbers are the only identification issued to most Americans that allows them to access the government’s benefits.
In order to apply, you must provide a social security card or other valid ID.
The federal government issues the Social Security number for eligible recipients based on a list of factors, including age, gender, race, marital status, national origin, and whether the person is married or in a relationship.
A few other factors are required to obtain a Social Security card, such as having been married, living together, receiving disability benefits, and being a dependent.
The Social Security Administration uses the same list of criteria to issue Social Security cards to people who are not eligible.
But the information about the applicant is different from the information used to verify the information on the Social Status Card.
For example, if an applicant has not had any prior Social Security checks or has not ever had a disability claim, the application may not be valid.
To obtain a social status card, you need to: Have your Social Security information verified by the Social Services Administration (SSA) before you apply.
