i dont get it.. how can i get ssn if im here in the philippines? who will issue me ssn? calif or nj?
Simple answer is you cannot get a social security number until you are 1. A US citizen, 2. Legal permanent resident or 3. Have a valid work visa and have been authorized by US Dept of Homeland Security.
No state has the power to issue a SSN. Only the social security administration can grant a SSN.
Until you are qualified for a SSN you are not eligible for a nursing license in the states that require a SSN/have implemented the federal mandate (NJ, CA, AZ, MD, VT, FL and others)
