I read the recent post about this but when I went to submit for an ATIN, the website said to make sure I couldn't get the SS# first. So I decided to call the social security office and they said that they thought I could bring my adoption decree and the original birth certificate into the local SS office and they will probably give me DD's SS card, but she wasn't sure. The office has horrible hours and is a little bit of a drive from my house, so I'd like to know before I go in..unfortunately, when I called the local office's number, it directed me back to the original person I spoke with.
Do any of you know if this will work? Have you tried this?
