Employment letter information:
If you are a new student and do not have a social security number, you will receive a letter from Human Resources/International Student Scholar offices to apply for a number with the Social Security Administration office. You do not have to contact HR for your letter. The letter will be automatically prepared and emailed to you once you 1) submit your documents to HR, 2) your department submits your job, 3) your job is approved 4) your job is in Banner (about three weeks after your job is in Banner). Once you receive this letter, contact SSA to schedule an appointment. Failure to apply for a social security number and present it to Human Resources within 90 days of your start date, will lead to termination of employment. New Faculty can take their employment agreement directly to the Social Security Administration to apply for your SSN. You do not need an additional letter from Human Resources or the International Student Scholar office to apply. Social Security Office Locator.

Notice About Social Security Cards
Please note that the University strongly recommends that each employee present his/her original Social Security card to assure accurate payroll tax and retirement system reporting. If possible, please bring your original Social Security card, or official proof of application, when you visit the Human Resources department for your initial employment processing. If you are unable to locate your card, you may apply for a duplicate card by visiting your local Social Security Administration. Use this link for information on obtaining a new or replacement Social Security Card.
New Online Services for NC residents: The Social Security Administration expanded online services for residents of North Carolina available through my Social Security portal at https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/. North Carolina residents can use the portal for many replacement Social Security number (SSN) card requests.
Please review our Statement of Purpose on why we request your social security number.
