Hi, my parents hold E2 visas and I am their 18 year old son. We have Canadian citizenship, and we have been living in California for about 5 years. I have applied for a social security number numerous times, but I haven't succeeded. I need the social security number now especially because I need to apply for special services and possibily get a job in college. Can someone please tell me how I can get my ssn or if it is even possible. Also, I heard that I can apply for a student visa in college which is going to start this coming september and obtain my ssn through that. Please tell me if there are any other methods of obtaining an ssn or if getting a student visa is even a possibility. Thank you in advance.
