Applying for an SSN or ITIN

February 18, 2021

Due to the pandemic, the Social Security Administration Office in New Haven is closed to walk in traffic. However, if you are a new or continuing student or scholar and are eligible to apply for a social security number, OISS can assist you in making an appointment with the Social Security Administration at the New Haven office.  These are in-person appointments, so you must be in New Haven to apply.

Please complete this appointment request form. Within a couple of weeks, OISS will make arrangements with the New Haven office and inform you of your appointment time. Do not sign up for an appintment until you are eligible to apply and are in New Haven.

Please note that OISS does not have any flexibility or control when scheduling your appointment date and time with the Social Security Administration, so once you are given an appointment please make sure to fit it into your schedule.

If you are not eligible for an SSN, but need an ITIN to file your tax return, you will find details on obtaining an ITIN here.
