  • DS-230

    There is a question on this application I do not know how to answer regarding whether I want a SSN or not. It didn't make sense to me to request a SSN at the consular post where the interview is going to take place in September.

    The link for the form is

    http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/81807.pdf

    and the question is 33A and 33B.

    Any clarification will be apreciated.
    Thanks

      Hi Mary, you might want to chect out this link from Social Security Admin (SSA):
      http://www.ssa.gov/ssnvisa/whatyou_need.htm

      The main site link for SSA is: http://www.ssa.gov/


      AND...This one will give you more info (see below)

      ASSESSMENT OF THE ENUMERATION-AT-ENTRY PROCESS

      Objective
      To assess the effectiveness of SSA's Enumeration-at-Entry process.

      Background
      SSA entered into agreements with the Department of State (State) and DHS, formerly the Immigration and Naturalization Service, in 1996 and 2000, respectively, to assist SSA in enumerating certain classes of immigrants. State and DHS collect and transmit to SSA enumeration data collected as part of the immigration process. SSA calls this process Enumeration-at-Entry.
      SSA allows immigrants who are lawfully admitted as permanent residents and age 18 or older to apply for an SSN card through Enumeration-at-Entry. By electing to participate in this program, the immigrant does not complete a Form SS-5, Application for a Social Security Card. Instead, the immigrant applies for an original SSN card on the State DS-230 Form, Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration, and DHS electronically transmits to SSA the data elements collected for enumeration purposes. Using these data, SSA assigns an SSN to the immigrant and mails the SSN card to the address the immigrant provided State or DHS.

      Hope it helps
      God Bless America ! Love IT ....or LEAVE it !

          Depending on whether you have been present in the US will depend on how you answer question 33A, first question. If you have never been present in the US except as a visitor, then your answer is no. If you have been present in the US and were a foreign exchange student, international scholar, or have adjusted your status in the US, then the answer is yes. If you cannot recall your SSN, than put NA when asked. The second question on 33A you should answer yes. This will save you a trip to the Social Security office after you arrive in the US.

          The second question is what we call a disclosure. it really does not matter if you check "yes" or "no." And you do not have any consequences if you checked "no."
