Ok, so this is a fun time to live in the US.
I dont have my birth certificet, which wouldnt be a problem if my WALLET had not been stolen which contained such gems as my ID, and my SS Card.
You need one to get the other to get the other.
I am trying to find a work around to this, but thats proving harder than I thought. My mother is in no condition to help me get a copy of my birth cert, so I can only hope that the "Proof of ID" that they are talking about when it comes to my SS card is my SS number. I will find out when I get the replacement form, in a couple of weeks.
