Information about Social Security The Social Security system was established in the 1930s to provide financial aid to the elderly and disabled. To contribute to the fund, both employees and employers must pay social security taxes. Every citizen of the United States and Green Card holder has a unique social insurance number. This is used to keep track of the funds being set up, and to distribute benefits to those who have the right to them.
Students, temporary visitors, and workers with non-immigrant visas may also be allowed to apply for a Social Security Number. The Social Security card in the United States is an important document. It is a document that entitles individuals to certain benefits after retirement. Employers, banks, schools, and the USCIS all use it as an identification card. Social Security is complex and linked to many private and government databases.
Social Security Card Eligibility requirements: Anyone looking to work in the United States must have a Social Security Number and a Social Security Card. When filing taxes, a Social Security Number is required. A Social Security card is not available to everyone. Social security cards are typically only available to U.S. citizens, permanent resident, Green Card holders, or individuals who have permission to work in the United States. There are two types of social security cards. One is for Americans with work authorization and one for foreigners on temporary visas. The following restrictions are included on these Social Security Cards.
Important: Individuals not eligible for a Social Security Number may apply for an ITIN (Individual Taxpayer ID Number).
