Social Security Numbers for F-1 Students
A Social Security Number (SSN) is a number assigned by the US government to track your income levels and determine your correct rate of tax withholding. It is required by all employers in order to pay you for any work you do. It does not provide legal authorization to work in the U.S.
Individuals without a social security number (SSN) are not authorized to work in any capacity until a SSN is provided to the Office of Human Resources.
The Office of Human Resources is located on the 8th floor of the Tower Building, Room 806 and can also be contacted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. It is your responsibility to give the number to the Human Resources Office as soon as you receive it in order to avoid any delays in receiving payment.
