Social Security Number

To document your Social Security Number, present one of the following original documents that contain your current name (photocopies or faxes will NOT be accepted):

  • Your Social Security card
  • W-2 form
  • Social Security Administration 1099 form
  • Non-Social Security Administration 1099 form
  • Pay stub with your name and Social Security number on it

Your SSN will not be listed on your Driver's License or ID. The Vermont DMV will assign you a unique Driver's License or ID number.

Corrected Information

If you need to correct or update information at the Social Security Administration, do so several days before you apply for a Driver's License or ID card. For information on how to do this, visit www.ssa.gov.

Foreign Nationals

If you are a temporary foreign national not authorized for employment, you are required to present documentation from Social Security Administration verifying you are not eligible for a SSN; Vermont DMV will verify your USCIS number. If you are eligible for employment but do not have a SSN, you are required to obtain and present one. The Vermont DMV will not issue a Driver's License or ID if you have less than 30 days of Lawful Presence remaining. The Vermont DMV will electronically verify your name, date of birth and SSN with the Social Security Administration. Make sure your document is up to date and accurate to avoid delay.

FAQs

Visit a federal Social Security Administration office to obtain a card. More information is available on the SSA’s website: www.ssa.gov.
