Section 7213(a)(1)(C) of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act (IRTPA) of 2004 (Public Law 108-458), requires SSA to independently verify all documents submitted by U.S.-born individuals as evidence of age for an original SSN card, unless the request for an SSN is submitted through the Enumeration at Birth process. As a result, we must secure evidence of an individual’s date of birth or age and ensure the authenticity of the document submitted. This limits the age documents that we can accept as evidence of age for an original SSN card for a person born in the U.S. to those we can verify independently.

Although SSA verifies all immigration documents with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the IRTPA requirement does not affect procedures for collection or verification of documents submitted as proof of age for foreign-born applicants for SSNs.
