Florida Department of Real Estate requires EIN (Employer Identification Number) and my Social Security Number to apply for a "brokerage license". My recently opened US company already have an EIN but I (as an Officer) don't have a SSN because Im a non-US resident. Could you please advise me if there is an option to apply for a SSN for license purpose? Your help is greatly appreciated.
Yes, my ex partner obtained US social security number while he was non-US resident. He was Canadian.
I recommend asking either lawyer or directly the authority since the requirements may be different where you are from and what you need this for.
Hope this help.
If you are authorized to work in the United States, you can get a SSN as a non-citizen. The key will be the authorization to work. If you are not yet resident in the U.S., but have authority to work here, you can get a SSN when you apply for an immigrant visa with the U.S. State Department.
