Do you need to apostille your Social Security Card?
A Social Security card is issued by the Social Security Administration. You need an SSN to work, and it’s used to determine your eligibility for Social Security benefits and certain government services.
In order to apostille your Social Security card, you will need to make a color copy and meet with a local notary public. In some states, a notary has the power to copy certify the Social Security Card. Basically, the notary will make a color copy and certify that the copy is a true copy of the original. The alternative method and what is typically common is for you to make the color copy and write out the following statement, “I certify this is a true color copy of my Social Security card”. You will then sign it in front of the notary public and the notary will notarize your signature.
You can meet with a local notary public in your state or if you are outside of the U.S., you can contact the local US Embassy or Consulate office and meet with a Federal notary. If you are physically in the U.S., the local notary public can assist you. Once your document has been notarized, the next step is to mail it with out apostille order forms for processing.
