Are Itins Valid For Work Purposes?

No. ITINS are only used for federal income tax purposes. Alien individuals who are legally admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence or other categories that authorize U.S. employment are eligible for Social Security Numbers (SSNs). Individuals who are eligible for SSNs are ineligible for ITINS.
