Does anyone know how long it takes Social Security to issue your newborn a number? Do they mail you a card? My insurance wants a number for my son, but he does not have one yet.

I think it depends on when your birth certificate was issued. (longer if you're like me and only just yesterday dropped the papers off at town hall)

I want to say that I remember it taking one or two months.

I got the same letter from my insurance company, but I think they realize that it all takes a few months.

The card does come in the mail.

Noah's card came really quickly...just a couple of weeks, from what I remember.

We also got our card (via mail) very quickly, but the hospital took care of the paperwork. I just had to check some box that said "please request a social security number for me."

We filed the paperwork the day after ds3 was born, and his SS card came around 6 weeks. We were told to expect 12-15 weeks. We haven't seen a birth certificate yet.

In my town, you don't automatically get a birth certificate.
I filed our paperwork in person, and to leave with a notarized copy of the birth certificate cost $10.

We got ours within 2 weeks. I think it does have something to do with filing the birth certificate. The hospital did all our paperwork.

We just got ours in the mail yesterday. Ds was born Mar 15.
