Where To Get and File Social Security Number Application Forms
Summary: This is an example of Publication 80 (Revised January 2005); the text lists information on where to get and file applications for social security numbers for U.S. possessions. It states:
U.S. Virgin Islands--Saint Thomas: Social Security Administration Office, 8000 Nisky Center, First Floor, Suite 2, Charlotte Amalie, Virgin Islands 00802. Saint Croix: Social Security Administration, 1, 2, & 3A Sunny Isle Shopping Center, Christiansted, Virgin Islands 00820.

Working people in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, like those working in the United States, are now building protection for themselves and their families under the Social Security program. The three kinds of monthly benefits under Social Security are:
- 1. Retirement--at age 65. (Reduced benefits are payable as early as age 62.)
- 2. Disability--when a worker under age 65 becomes unable to work because of a disability.
- 3. Survivors--when a worker dies.
In addition to cash benefits, health insurance benefits are available for certain categories of people, whether or not they are retired.
