The Social Security Number allows us to identify ourselves in the USA and later on open a bank account, sign up at the college, request the driving license, sign a phone contract, be part of our family car insurance etc…
After arriving in our family and after settling down, we have to search the closest office to fill in the request. To find it you can click on this link and write your zip code.
The date of the appointment you have to bring:
- AuPairCare letter
- Passport with Visa
At the office you have to take a number and during the wait, fill in the form you see in the pic below with all your personal information(in English).
When it is your turn, tell the employee that you couldn’t do the online application because you are an au pair. Give him all the papers and he will take care of the rest.
At the end he will print you a summary, make sure all the info are correct and sign it.
In a week you will receive your Social Security Number at home!
