      Hello there...

      First of all...

      SSN and ITIN are diferents...

      SSN is given to anyone who is american citizen or has been autorized to work legally in this country

      ITIN is just a number, looks like a SSN because both of them got 9 digits...
      SSN XXX-XX-XXXX
      ITIN XX-XXX-XXXX

      The diference between them is simple... SSN include benefits, ITIN does not
      You can not use a ITIN to work... because this is a special number for IRS not for INS, so you only need that number if you need to report taxes and you are not elegible for a SSN.

      If you use the ITIN for work, they can report you to INS and ship-you-back-home.... because this is illigal.

      Does not matter what kind of visa u have... if you are not elegible for a SSN and you need to pay taxes... you need a ITIN. If you have a working permit visa... you are elegible for a SSN, and you do not need the ITIN.

      Hope this information is usefull for you, sorry for my english.. im still working on it !
