1 Why is there a charge for the service? The SSA provides free forms.
E-forms is a paid service that makes the process of filling out and filing government forms simpler and more convenient.
Our service eliminates the process of reading through endless, hard to find complicated instructions, and eliminates the necessity of standing in line at the Social Security office.
By using e-forms you avoid common mistakes that could potentially delay or even cancel your application.
Think of it as filing your tax return. While you may download IRS forms and fill them out yourself, most Americans rather have the help of an accountant or prefer to use a software application in order to make sure all information is submitted correctly, thus avoiding costly mistakes.
2 Application Information
Where is my new social security card?
To receive a new social security card, you must mail your Social Security application package along with the required supporting documents.
Your e-package includes the filled-out, ready to be mailed SS5 form, list of acceptable documents for each situation, detailed instructions and a prepaid mailing label addressed from you to your correct local Social Security Office.
After mailing your package you will receive your new Social Security card and supporting documents at your mailing address within 10 to 14 business days.
Please note that you will first receive the new card, then the supporting documents.
Why do I have to mail documents with the SS5 form?
The SSA needs to attest that you are in fact the person you say you are. In order to avoid fraud and identity theft, you must submit original documents. This is for your own protection.
3 Application Process
Do I have to fill out Race information?
Race is an option, not a required information, and we can not maintain it in our database. You may check the box if you wish so.

6 Required Documents
In order to prevent fraud and to protect you against Identity Theft, the SSA requires that you send original documents in order to prove that you are who you claim to be. The SSA will only accept original documents or copies certified by the issuing agency.
How I can get certified copies?
You can request a copy of your Driver’s License online at your local DMV.
What types of documents are accepted?
If you are a US Born Citizen, and have been issued a previous card as an American citizen, you only need to show proof of identity.
To prove your identity you need to send a Driver’s License, a State issued non driver’s ID, or a US Passport.
If you were not born in the US or are not a US Citizen, you must provide proof of both identity and citizenship.
