Deferred Action & Social Security Numbers

If your DACA application is approved, you are eligible for a Social Security Number.

Here is the official word on how to apply — after your DACA application is approved.  You will need your USCIS work authorization card and your original identity document (like your passport, birth certificate, or state ID).

A useful update from USCIS on how to respond to the Social Security Number questions on the DACA applications:

Q9. How should I fill out question nine (9) on the Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization? 
A9. When you are filing a Form I-765 as part of a Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals request, question nine (9) is asking you to list those Social Security numbers that were officially issued to you by the Social Security Administration.
