Getting a SSN for a baby born at home - UPDATE - GOT IT - Page 2

post #21 of 28
Both times with my home-born babies, the SS office accepted as second ID a signed letter from my midwife stating she provided my prenatal care and witnessed the birth, along with the birth certificate.

Actually, in 25 years I'll be eligible for Social Security myself!

I am talking about dealing with paediatricians, school officials, doctors, nurses, social workers, youth administrators, drivers' licenses, etc. for your child, as far as paperwork and identifications are concerned.

Yes, getting SSA for yourself will be another mountain to climb.

UPDATE

After one week, SS returned to me my original documents: my passport, baby's BC and baby's immunization record.
They say it'll now be up to 4 weeks (from when they received it) to get the #.

So far, so good . . .

Thanks for asking this! I just filed a petition through probate court to get my ds his birth certificate (UC in san diego= nightmare), then I can go to vital records and get that, and THEN I can do all of this. Yippeee

IT ARRIVED.

Four weeks after I sent in my documents, I now have the SSN in hand.

All in all, not so bad - after the original confusion about what was actually needed.
FTR, I sent in my passport, baby's birth certificate, and baby's immunization record.

Do you need medical records? Really? We're planning a UP/UC right now and we'll be moving to the Bay Area at the beginning of May. For proof of pregnancy, I'm planning on just going into Planned Parenthood and peeing in a cup when we move there (and asking for the "proof" on an official letterhead and such). My first was a UC and she's never seen a doctor at all. Here in Utah, we just filled out a piece of paper at the time the birth certificate was filed and then a SS card came in the mail a month later. Why is it different state to state if it's a federally-issued ID? I really don't want to bother with any sort of WBVs at all. Having to go around and look for a doctor postpartum just doesn't seem appealing to me.
