Social Security Card Application Guide

As an international student, if you would like to work on campus, you will need a social security card. 

Social Security numbers generally are assigned to people who are authorized to work in the United States. Social Security numbers are used to report your wages to the government and to determine eligibility for Social Security benefits. Social Security will not assign a number to you just to enroll in a college or school. 

You need a Social Security number to get a job, collect Social Security benefits and get some other government services. But you don't often need to show your Social Security card. Do not carry your card with you. Keep it in a safe place with your other important papers.

Please read carefully and follow instruction of these documents to ensure smooth application for social security card in US
