Frequently Asked Questions

How to get a Social Security Number

Every taxpayer, dependent and person on which an Earned Income Credit is based must have a Social Security number. (Individuals such as foreign citizens who are not eligible to get a Social Security number can be issued an Individual Tax Identification Number, or “ITIN.”)

Social Security numbers are issued by the Social Security Administration, not the IRS. To apply for a Social Security number, fill out a Form SS-5 and take it with original documents for identification to your nearest Social Security office. (You may mail the application, but that is not recommended because of risk of losing the documents you must send).

For the nearest Social Security office, check the Yellow Pages. The Social Security Administration can be reached:
