Do newborns need SS numbers so that they can be covered under Insurance? Is it so that it's easier to start an investment account for them? What's
the deal? Oh, and why is it that the school system requires a childs SS number be on file in addition to having a copy of the childs birth
certificate? If it is a citizenship issue the birth certificate should suffice.
Yeah, they tried laying that same crap on me. Well guess what? I didnt get SSNs for my children, and you bet your ass I left the hospital with them.
They also tried to tell me I could not name my children whatever I wanted, that they had to have the same last name as me or my wife. Wrong again.
They also said I had to sign the birth certificate, even though I was married to the woman giving birth for years, and I proved them wrong about that,
They are so used to people signing whatever they ask for that they think you actually have
to sign this crap. Tell them to go to hell, and call
a judge if they have such a damn problem. I have even had the state of callifornia tell my wife she had
to change her name to mine in order to
get a drivers licence.
I hate these people assuming you have to do things just because they willingly agree to be subjected these programs.
The reason you have to use a SSN to get a job is so they can take your money. The SSN is NOT
a national I.D. number, a credit I.D. number or
anything other than a Social Security tax I.D. number.
NO government agency can deny service if you do not have one, or if you refuse to give it. It is intended for tax reasons only. Also, no state can
require you to put it on your drivers licence, and there is case law to prove that.
