    • U.S. citizens; and
    • People lawfully admitted to the United States on a permanent basis.

    • Who are lawfully admitted to the United States without work authorization from DHS, but with a valid nonwork reason for needing a Social Security number; or
    • Who need a number because of a federal law requiring a Social Security number to get a benefit or service.
