1. I am in the process of renouncing my American citizenship. Born in USA but left at age 18 and lived in the UK for 50 years. For renunciation to be complete I need to file 5 years back tax.
2. To file taxes I need an American social security number. I have no number or card but believe I may have had one when I graduated HS.
3. To get a replacement SS number requires American ID. I have no American ID; I have British ID. This is because I live in the UK.
4. Also it seems that to get a SS No I need to visit a SSA office in the USA. This is expensive as well as inconvenient and there should be away around it.
Can anyone help with getting a replacement SS No?
