Social Security OAC-790 #usa #general

Gary Blumsohn

I applied to get a copy of the SS5 application form for a social security number.  In response, they sent me the Form OAC-790, saying that this is the only document available and this is the form that was submitted.  It was submitted in 1970, when the applicant was just about to turn 65.  She was a Holocaust survivor who had lived in the US since 1950, though she was disabled, and I suspect she never worked in the US.


I’m curious about 2 things: 

  1. Under “Type of Claim” it says “L”.  What does this signify?
  2. In a “Remarks” box, it says “MI     X”


Can anyone shed any light on this?
