SOCIAL SECURITY CARD

I LOST MY SONS SOCIAL SECURITY CARD AND I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT AN HEALTH INSURANCE CARD WITH PARENT NAME AND SON'S NAME WILL BE SUFFICIENT IN OBTAINING A NEW CARD. IS THIS TRUE?

What do you do if you ordered a social security card in Februrary of 2012 and had it sent to California when you currently lived and you still never received it in the mail ?

You should receive your card within 10 business days from the date on your receipt. If you do not receive the replacement card in the specified time frame, contact your local Social Security office for follow-up instructions.

To verify if a replacement card has been issued, you can:

* Call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

* Contact your local Social Security office.

If you work for the UN, I'm not sure why you need a Social Security number for a "nonwork reason". Is this for a driver's license or similar?

In general, only noncitizens who have permission to work from the Department of Homeland Security can get a Social Security number.

If you are lawfully in the United States but do not have permission to work, you are eligible for a non-work Social Security number only if the law requires you to provide a non-work Social Security number to get a federal benefit or state general assistance benefit that you are otherwise qualified for.

Lawfully admitted noncitizens can get many benefits and services without a Social Security number. You do not need a number to get a driver's license, register for school, obtain private health insurance, or to apply for school lunch programs or subsidized housing. Although many companies such as banks and credit companies may ask for your Social Security number, you are not required to provide one.

If you need a number for tax purposes and you are not authorized to work in the U.S., you can apply for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

In general, you can not apply online for a Social Security number. You must either visit a Social Security office or mail in required documentation.
