There are three different types of social security cards. The first type is issued to U.S. citizens as well as the permanent residents. This form of social security card contains the holder’s name and the social security number and it grants the holder permission to work in the United States without restrictions. It also allows him or her to earn social security credits that qualify the individual for retirement and disability benefits.
The second form of social security card also contains the cardholder’s name and social security number but it has a warning that reads This card is valid for work with DHS authorization.’ This social security card is issued for people who are allowed to work temporarily in the United States.
The third type of social security card contains the same information as the regular one but it contains an addendum stating that it is not valid for any employment.
