Welcome to the United States
and to Social Security!
Whether you are a student or a teacher, a farmworker or a businessperson,
a refugee or a temporary resident, if you are an immigrant, you have come
to the right place. If English is not easy for you, ask us to find interpreters to help you. See our rules for people you choose to interpret
for you. Check out the Multi-Language Gateway for Social Security
information in 15 languages. We're here to help you.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a new process for noncitizens
to apply for Social Security number (SSN) cards as
part of the immigration process. Now, people age 18 and older applying
for immigrant visas with the U.S. Department of State can also apply for
SSN cards at the same time.
