Social Security

India does not have an office for the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you reside in India and wish to apply for a Social Security Number (SSN), please click here. Please note that parents of a U.S. citizen minor child may submit an application on their child’s behalf with a valid government-issued U.S. id or Indian passport.

If you have questions regarding services provided by the Social Security Administration (SSA), you must contact the SSA Federal Benefits Unit (FBU) located in the Philippines.
