Does anyone know how long it takes to receive a social security number?

Just had a baby and wanted to get taxes done early but wasn't sure how long it was going to take before it got mailed out.

  • I live in New Mexico, and I think she was about 3-4 weeks old. It came with the wrong middle name and that took quite a while to sort out. Best of luck!

  • it depends... when i was in the hospital, we filled out the paper work, and when i was sent home.. it arrived 8 days later.. so in total, we waited about two weeks, but i've heard as long as two months.. so it just depends on the state, the hospital etc.. good luck, hope it comes soon..
