A person without an SSN may file a claim for title VIII benefits alleging WW II military
service. A title VIII claim filed without an SSN must be adjudicated to award or denial.
When the decision is to award benefits, an SSN must be assigned to the claimant before
the claim is adjudicated. The adjudication process is the same as the process used
for a claim with an SSN.
Retain the file in the field office or processing site (filed alphabetically). See
