How the Process Works
Steps to Student Benefits
SSA mails SSA-1372-BK to child 3 months before 18th birthday, child obtains an SSA-1372-BK from his or her local Social Security office, or child downloads and prints the SSA-1372-BK.
Student completes SSA-1372-BK and takes it to school official for certification.
School Official reviews page 2 of the form, certifies page 3, returns both pages to the student, and retains pages 4 and 5.
Student takes or mails completed page 2 and certified page 3 of the SSA-1372-BK to local Social Security office for processing.
