Each applicant for an original or new (different) SSN must submit evidence to support
the date of birth alleged.
See RM 10210.020B for evidence requirements for original or new (different) SSN requests.
See RM 10225.066B. for evidence requirements for new (different) SSNs based on adoption
of a U.S.-born child. If a prospective adopting parent of a U.S. citizen child cannot
provide sufficient evidence to obtain an SSN for the child while waiting for a domestic
adoption to become final, the parent can obtain an adoption taxpayer identification
number (ATIN) from the Internal Revenue Service (see RM 10225.055C).
Prospective adoptive parents of non-citizen children can apply for Individual Taxpayer
Identification Numbers (ITINs--see RM 10225.105).
