        If the applicant/recipient does not have a Social Security number for an individual who must be included in the AU or who desires to be included in the AU, the applicant/recipient must complete an SS5 for the individual requiring a Social Security number. The SS5 is completed by the caseworker and forwarded to the Social Security office along with the original documents verifying age, identity, and citizenship of the individual. If the individual chooses to provide the verifications to the Social Security Office, he/she may do so, but the application for a Social Security number is not complete until the verifications are provided.

 

        If the individual states that an application for a number has been made with the Social Security Office, or if the applicant/recipient insists on applying for the number directly with the Social Security Office, the application/recipient must provide proof of application to the caseworker prior to approval. Form SSA 5028, Receipt for Application for a Social Security Number, is acceptable for a number.
