Social Security Administration February 26, 2015 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Social Security Number Card Applications
Document Number: 2015-03726
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-02-26
Agency: Social Security Administration, Agencies and Commissions
We propose to revise our regulations to allow applicants for a Social Security number (SSN) card to apply by completing a prescribed application and submitting the required evidence, rather than completing a paper Form SS-5, Application for a Social Security Card. We also propose to remove the word ``documentary'' from our description of certain evidence requirements. These changes would provide flexibility in the ways in which the public may request SSN cards and allow us, in the future, to implement an online SSN replacement card application system, which we are currently developing. In addition, we propose to replace ``Immigration and Naturalization Service'' with ``Department of Homeland Security'' to reflect that agency's reorganization.
