What do I need to open an account?
Make sure you have this information handy:
Your email address;
Social Security Number or Tax Identification Number;
If you’re an Authorized Legal Representative, you’ll need the same information as the beneficiary’s, plus your work status.
If the beneficiary is not eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, or has experienced blindness as determined by the Social Security Act, they need a signed Diagnosis Form from a licensed physician.
If you’re signing up using a paper application, you’ll need an Enrollment Form.
