Ask the foreign student to provide a telephone number where he can be reached in the
future. Enter “Y” in the question, “Notify office of the SSN assigned”, on the verify
and sign page in SSNAP to have the Enumeration System generate a message the workday
after an SSN application is processed to notify the FO of the SSN.
When you receive the notification message, you can call the foreign student and advise
that the SSN has been assigned. For general information about releasing information
by telephone, see GN 03360.005. If the foreign student did not request release of the SSN in advance, advise him
or her to come into the office with his or her evidence of identity and immigration
documents and we will check to see if an SSN has been assigned. If the SSN has been
assigned, the SSN can be provided to the foreign student. The foreign student can
provide his or her SSN to the employer. For general information about in-person requests
for access to or disclosure of information from SSA records, see GN 03380.000.
