Note for Foreign Nationals - 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. This letter will be prepared and sent to you within 3 weeks of your job being approved and 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 the SSA offices reopening, 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.
Please note: Tax allowances will default to single/zero for US Citizens and Permanent Residences. Should you wish to change your form W-4 and/or form NC-4 to something other than single with zero allowances, you can now do so online by following the FAQ located here:
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 it's my Social Security portal at www.socialsecurity.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.
