JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen easy ordering of SS-5s (original applications for Social Security numbers) #general


Renee Steinig
 

Chris Gould <oldandintheway9@yahoo.co.uk> asked for the best and
quickest way to order an copy of his great-aunt's original application
for a Social Security number (SS-5).

These documents can now be ordered online, using a credit card. See
the Social Security Administration's Guide to Freedom of Information
Requests at
<http://www.ssa.gov/foia/html/foia_guide.htm#Requests>.

Chris also asked whether the application will give any details on the
places of birth of his great-aunt's parents. An SS-5 includes the
applicant's birth place and his/her parents' names but no further
information about the parents. See two sample applications at
<http://www.sephardicstudies.org/records.html>.
