How do you know if you are eligible for a SSN?

You’re probably applying for a new or renewal Individual Taxpayer Identification Number because you do not believe that you meet the eligibility requirement for a Social Security card. However, your standing can shift over time as your own circumstances change, or you may not have gotten correct information in the first place. ITIN W-7 Application supplies the information you need to follow the proper procedures for obtaining either an ITIN or an SSN. 

Who Can Get a Social Security Number?

As explained above, certain factors impact SSN eligibility for those who are not United States citizens. 

Gaining authorization to work through either a change in your alien status or special application procedures makes you eligible to receive a Social Security number. The reason that you would have completed an  ITIN application in the past was to satisfy tax filing requirements without possessing an SSN. 

If you were originally issued an ITIN and any of the above conditions now hold true, you do not need to renew. Meanwhile, those who have already been granted the authorization to work do not need to apply for an ITIN at all. Instead, you must complete Form SS-5 from the Social Security Administration to be assigned an SSN with which you can fill out your tax return.
