Apply for a Social Security Number if you have a job!

A Social Security number (SSN) is a nine-digit number used to report your wages to the government and is used on some U.S. tax forms. Please note that any international student who was present in the U.S. for part of 2021 should prepare for the upcoming tax season.

If you are employed in the U.S., you are expected to obtain a Social Security Number. Any international student working on campus is eligible to apply for an SSN and should plan to do so within their first month or so of employment.  

Also, according to most recent information received by ISSS, the Social Security Administration office is currently requiring in-person appointments that are scheduled by phone. Please make sure to plan ahead before visiting.
