  5. Hi,
    I need a social security number, I am a first time applicant (I have never had one before). I saw your response on the 12 June at 11:55am to Elizabeth, I want to know if this process where you send an application with your needed documentation applies to all offices or few.selected offices because, I have been calling and also sent in an application to 250 seventh avenue Phoenix, Az 85007 and they still insist that I need to walk in when the offices re-open of which they do not know when that is.

    The worldwide pandemic has been months and even basic schools in the United States are re-opening to children. Can the Social security also work within safety precautions and give us a bit of assurance that it is not a deliberate attempt to frustrate first time card applicants?

    I understand if you Do not reply because I see you choose which messages to respond to.
