Social Security Cards
Due to COVID-19, those requesting documents from the Social Security Administration are experiencing longer wait times than usual or no response at all. Please contact the OISS for more information.
Students in F-1 or J-1 status are not eligible for a Social Security number without offer of employment. If you require evidence of ineligibility for a Social Security number in order to apply for a state driver license, you may go directly to the Social Security Administration office and request a letter of ineligibility to submit with your driver license application. To get the letter of ineligibility bring the following items to the Social Security Office:
- Passport with I-94
- I-20 or DS-2019
- IUSB Student ID Card
Students may begin employment before applying for a Social Security number, but must apply for a Social Security number immediately after beginning employment.
