General Information About Social Security: The Social Security system was set up in the 1930s to provide financial assistance to the disabled and elderly. Employers and employees are required to pay social security taxes to contribute to this fund. Each United States citizen and permanent resident, or Green Card holder, has a unique social security number in order to maintain records of the funds being established, as well as to allocate benefits to those who are entitled to receive them.

Some temporary visitors, students and workers on non-immigrant visas are also allowed and sometimes required to obtain a Social Security number. The Social Security card is a very important document in the United States. Not only does it entitle individuals to certain benefits once retired, but employers, banks, schools and the USCIS all use the social security card as a form of identification. Social Security is a complex system that is linked to many other government and private databases and services.

Social Security Card Eligibility Requirements:  any person seeking employment in the United States needs a Social Security number and a Social Security Card. A Social Security number is also required when filing taxes. Not everyone is eligible to receive a Social Security card. Social Security cards are usually only issued to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or Green Card holders, and individuals with permission to work in the United States. However, there are 2 types of social security cards that are issued to foreigners without work authorization, as well as foreign students and individuals on temporary visas. These Social Security Cards contain one of the following restrictions printed on them.


Individuals who are not eligible to obtain a Social Security Number can apply for ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number).
