Practice Note
Social Security Administration Establishes New Requirements for Number Issuance to F-1 Students

On September 13, 2004, the Federal Register published a new regulation adopted by the Social Security Administration regarding the issuance of social security number to F-1 students.  These new regulations will become effective on October 13, 2004.

According to this new regulation, the SSA is revising its rules for assigning SSNs to foreign F-1 students.  Specifically, they are requiring additional evidence for F-1 students who are applying for SSNs.  Like all other applicants, an F-1 student must provide SSA with evidence of age, identity, immigration status, and work authorization.  In addition, unless the F-1 student has an employmnet authorization document (EAD) from DHS or is authorized by the F-1 student's school for curricular practical training (CPT), the F-1 student must provide evidence that he or she has been authorized by the school to work and has secured employment or a promise of employment before SSA will assign an SSN.

According to SSA, these rules further enhance the integrity of SSA's enumeration processes for assigning SSNs by reducing the proliferation of SSNs used for purposes that are not related to wrok and thereby decreasing the  potential for SSN fraud and misuse.
