Social Security and Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers

NOTE: The Trenton Social Security Administration has re-opened to the general public as of April 8th, 2022.  Students and scholars who need to apply for either an SSN denial letter or SSN will no longer require an appointment and may visit the office during their open business hours for a walk-in appointment. Please review section 6 below for information on the hours and directions to the office. 

NOTE for F-1 Students: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Student & Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has issued guidance permitting schools to issue electronic I-20s. A Form I-20 that has been electronically signed by a DSO and sent to a student is now valid for use at the SSA office once the student has printed the original form and physically signed their I-20. Please contact us at puvisa@princeton.edu with any issues.
