Did you get your child's social security number yet?

Did you get your child's social security number yet?

I got each of my child's social security numbers when they were just a few weeks old because our hospital submitted the paperwork for us. I have heard that not all hospital do that. I also heard some people want their child to live "off the grid" so they don't get them a social security number and let their child do it as an adult.

    we got our son's about a week after he was born. We filled out the paperwork while we were still in the hospital.

      Our hospital had the paperwork as part of our packet to complete and they took care of it. We got her card the mail within the first couple of weeks after she was born.

      It is possible but it is a HUGE pain in the butt.
