Hi, I'm 17 years old, and I have to go about getting a social security number, on my own. I've never really done anything on my own, so, this is kind of scarey. Here's my problem...

My parents never got a social security card for me as a child, and I'm having, now, to apply for one. I already went into the office and filled out the paperwork, and application, and gave over the required documents, but my question is; what is the possibility of me not getting a Social Security number? I'm a senior in high school, who plans to go to college, and plans to get a job, and this is VERY important to me... Please help me out if you can.

Thanks,

Most babies now have Social Security cards applied for while they are still in the hospital...if you have provided the appropriate paperwork, there is NO chance you won't get one unless you were born out of the country and your parents are illegal or something else wild. It's the right of every American - and please keep it in a safe place. They will also send you a piece of paper the card is on with your number - keep that safe as well, since identity theft is so huge now. You will need your card/number for everything you do, from working to going to school to getting a job. Welcome to the working world!

I agree with Sam...I see no reason why you wouldn't get a SS card, number. I need to find mine and plan to have it laminated, maybe at Office Depot just to protect it.

Hope everyone in here is having a great weekend!
