RM DAL10211.600 Requests for an SSN from an Alien without Work Authorization (RTN 01, 09/2012)
SSA will not assign an SSN to an alien who is illegally residing in the U.S. or currently in lawful
immigration status in the U.S., but does not have Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) work authorization, unless the alien has a valid nonwork reason for an SSN.
Certain aliens may present the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Form
H1106 to document a valid nonwork reason.
The Form H1106 must:
Specifically identify the alien;
Include or mark the check box statement:
“The person is an alien with evidence of lawful admission, but without Department
of Homeland Security (DHS) authority to work in the U.S. and has met all requirements
to receive federally funded benefits/services from the Texas Health and Human Services
Commission in accordance to Sec. 1137. [42 USC 1320b-7](a)(1).”
Include the name and telephone number of an official to contact so that the information
provided may be verified; and
Include the wet signature of the authorized official for the Texas HHSC.
Compare the signature with a list of management official’s signatures for your local
HSSC office or verify by phone with the issuing agency that the applicant presenting
Form H1106 was referred to SSA and meets all criteria to be entitled to a State benefit/service
except for an SSN. RM 10211.600A.3.a.
