Question about the Board

  1. 0
    i tried endorsing rn license to colorado. the state requires a social security number. they also have this affidavit to state what is the applicant's immigration status in the us. i said foreign national, lawful stay in the us, with valid ssn, but unauthorized to work. analyst doesn't know there is such ss that says not valid for employment. i gave her this link > http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/10002.html#a0=2 now she's asking me to scan a copy of my ss card and email it to her. i don't have a problem with doing that, but i just want to know, is this within the brn's jurisdiction to demand a copy of my ss? and is this safe to do? i don't know who's receving my information on the other end of that email. it is unusual to be asked for an actual copy of the ss card, i always thought they just need the number. the brn website has no mention that they may ask for the actual copy of the ss card. do they just wanna know if i have a real ss card or what? is it safe for me to email a copy of my ss to them?

    Employers will only accept an original ssn, so to answer your question,employers or licensing boards do have the right to ask for the card.

    Hello Kabayan. There is such a thing "SSN not valid to work". Not valid to work is stamped on the card. So you are working with an SSN not valid to work? Did you personally apply for SSN in the office? They mail you the SSN card in 4-6 wks.
