You need one document to prove your Social Security number when you apply for a new driver’s license, permit, or identification card.

Customers with questions about collecting their documents can call the BMV toll-free at 888-692-6841 and speak with a customer service representative for help or visit any Indiana license branch for assistance.

The full list of documents proving your Social Security number includes:

  • Social Security card.
  • W-2 form.
  • SSA-1099 form.
  • Non-SSA-1099 form.
  • Pay stub with your name and Social Security number on it.
  • Social Security Administration documents establishing that you are ineligible for a Social Security number.

Submitting Acceptable Documents

The BMV will only accept original documents or certified copies from the issuing agency. The BMV may refuse any document that appears fraudulent, unreliable, altered, or expired. All documents must be in English or be presented with a verifiably accurate English translation. Your legal name and date of birth on documents presented to the BMV must match Social Security Administration records.
