AN ACT to provide for the general welfare by establishing a system of Federal old-age benefits, and by enabling the several States

_____________________________________________

Why does the United States Government want parents to obtain a Social Security Number (SSN) for your baby?

What is a Social Security Number used for ?

It’s used by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)

_____________________________________________

Are you a U.S. citizen or a citizen of the United States (a citizen of one of the several States, the States of the Union, the United States of America) ?

Please contact a competent attorney / lawyer for a legal opinion if you do not know

_____________________________________________

The Social Security Administration seems to think that a 12-year-old knows the difference between a U.S. citizen and a citizen of the United States

_____________________________________________

Did you fill out a Social Security Application in the past because:

1. YOU WERE TOLD TO, or

2. YOU WERE TOLD YOU HAD TO, or

3. YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD TO, or

4. YOU WERE TOLD YOU COULD NOT BE HIRED WITHOUT a SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER ?

DID YOU CONSULT with an ATTORNEY / LAWYER BEFORE YOU DID ?

Did you know the difference between a U.S. Citizen and a citizen of the United States ?

_____________________________________________

WHY DOES THE FORM NOT DEFINE “U.S. citizen” ?

_____________________________________________

Did you know what was going to happen if you provided the Social Security Number to:

1. An employer, or

2. A bank, or

3. Others ?

Did you know that if you provided the Social Security Number to an employer, that

1. Social Security Taxes (FICA) would be withheld from your pay ?

2. Medicare Taxes would be withheld from your pay ?

3. Federal Income Tax would be withheld from your pay ?

If you did NOT know all of the above, the United States Supreme Court said:

_____________________________________________

Brady v. U.S.,

397 U.S. 742, at page 748

(1970)

Waivers of constitutional rights,

not only must be voluntary

but they must be knowing,

intelligent acts

done with sufficient awareness 

of the relevant circumstances

and likely consequences”

For assistance call us at 1-800-772-1213 or visit our website at http://www.socialsecurity.gov.

Original Social Security Card

To apply for an original card, you must provide at least two documents to prove age, identity, and U.S. citizenship or current lawful, work-authorized immigration status

If you are not a U.S. citizen and do not have DHS work authorization, you must prove that you have a valid non-work reason for requesting a card

NOTE:

If you are age 12 or older and have never received a Social Security number, you must apply in person

Replacement Social Security Card

To apply for a replacement card, you must provide one document to prove your identity

If you were born outside the U.S., you must also provide documents to prove your U.S. citizenship or current, lawful, work-authorized status

See page 2 for an explanation of acceptable documents

Changing Information on Your Social Security Record

To change the information on your Social Security number record

(i.e., a name or citizenship change, or corrected date of birth)

you must provide documents to prove your identity, support the requested change, and establish the reason for the change

For example, you may provide a birth certificate to show your correct date of birth

A document supporting a name change must be recent and identify you by both your old and new names

If the name change event occurred over two years ago or if the name change document does not have enough information to prove your identity, you must also provide documents to prove your identity in your prior name and/or in some cases your new legal name

Public Law 108-458 limits the number of replacement Social Security cards you may receive to 3 per calendar year and 10 in a lifetime

Cards issued to reflect changes to your legal name or changes to a work authorization legend do not count toward these limits

We may also grant exceptions to these limits if you provide evidence from an official source to establish that a Social Security card is required

Sections 205(c) and 702 of the Social Security Act, as amended, authorize us to collect this information

The information you provide will be used to assign you a Social Security number and issue a Social Security card

The information you furnish on this form is voluntary

However, failure to provide the requested information may prevent us from issuing you a Social Security number and card

We rarely use the information you supply for any purpose other than for issuing a Social Security number and card

However, we may use it for the administration and integrity of Social Security programs
