Can you claim a child with no SSN?
Asked by: minchk
Short version is my friend’s son has no SSN. Hospital never sent paperwork, then when she did the paperwork, it got messed up, more to it, but that’s the short version. He’s only 5 months old.
She wants to know if she can still claim him.
I have no idea.
She doesn’t have the birth certificate (part of the whole “long story” thing). She does have hospital papers, wellness visits, so on.
Still yes, or no?
Whoa, folks, don’t shoot the messenger.
I’ll just pass the message along.
