Occasionally, FOs send paper SS-5s to the Office of Central Operations (OCO) for processing.
These applications are not entered into SSNAP and are forwarded to Boyers for microprinting
after processing. Since coding and certification is not done by SSNAP, the FO is responsible
for manually coding all applicable blocks before sending SS-5s to OCO for processing.
A paper SS-5 is required for an application for a:

wrong number case, RM 10220.355;
new SSN because of a religious or cultural objection to the SSN assigned, RM 10220.105;or
