New easy way to obtain social security rejection letter required for certain ITIN applications


Social Security Statements can now be accessed online, sign up at: https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount

One is also able to receive U.S. Social Security Benefit Verification Letter stating that:

  • one never received Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income or Medicare

  • one received benefits in the past but do not currently receive them

This is helpful to ITIN applicants described below:

One may not apply for ITIN (Form W-7) if one has an SSN or if one is eligible to get an SSN. One is eligible for an SSN if one is a U.S. citizen or if one has been admitted by the United States for permanent residence or U.S. employment.

If the SSA will not issue one an SSN, one must get a letter of denial and attach it to one's Form W-7.

If one has an application for an SSN pending, don’t file Form W-7. Complete Form W-7 only if the SSA notifies you that you’re ineligible for an SSN.
