Getting your newborn a Social Security Number is important.  If your child is born in a hospital, the easiest way to secure a Social Security Number is when you give information for your child’s birth certificate.  If you wait to apply for a number at a Social Security office, you may encounter delays while we verify your child’s birth certificate.

Do you plan to pay a cleaning person, cook, gardener, babysitter, or other household worker at least $2,200 in 2020?  This amount includes any cash you pay for your household employee’s transportation, meals, and housing.  If you will pay at least $2,200 to one person, you have some additional financial responsibilities.
