You must have a Social Security card when you start work,

have never had a Social Security number, you must complete a free form, which
you can obtain by calling 1-800-772-1213 or from the Internet at http://www.ssa.gov.
You must present documents that show your age, citizenship, and who you are. You
must supply original documents; they will not accept photocopies. Usually your
birth certificate and some form of identity, such as a driverís license,
school record, or medical record will be sufficient. Although they prefer to see
your birth certificate, they will also accept a religious or hospital record of
your birth made before you were five years old.
To obtain a certified copy of your birth certificate contact the Idaho Vital Statistics Office in Boise at 334-5988. If born in another state, must contact vital statistics in that state capital.
