If you applied for your SSN at the Graduate Student Employee Processing (GSEP) event in August, 2016 you may be wondering why you haven’t gotten your number yet. Global HR has confirmed with the Social Security Administration that they are still in the process of approving those applications. SSA has indicated that they have completed nearly half of the applications, but are still working on the rest. If you have not yet received your SSN, don’t panic! We expect to see the rest of the numbers approved in the very near future.
