Social Security Rep. on Rota and Tinian This Week

June 17, 2008

A Social Security Administration official will be on Rota, today Wednesday, June 18 at the Rota's Mayor's Office Conference Room 10:30am to 4:30pm, and on Tinian Thursday, June 19 at the Community and Cultural Affairs Office located at the Tinian Gymnasium. Many guest workers have emailed me with questions and concerns about their social security benefits so I posting this here in case I miss you through email messages.

The Saipan Tribune reports:

To apply for a Social Security number, original or certified documents must be presented-no photocopies are acceptable. First time U.S. citizen applicants must present a birth certificate, proof of identity and if under age 12, a parent must present his or her identity.

For a replacement card, a U.S. citizen must present his or her identity and proof of citizenship. All proof of identity must be valid. Non-U.S. citizen applicants must present an original valid passport and CNMI Entry Permit or U.S. Permanent Residency Card.

“Social Security makes quarterly visits to the islands therefore we urge all residents to make time to visit the representative regarding any Social Security matter,” according to an SSA statement.
