If you are a retired member you have to show your valid social security number. These numbers are usually provided to US citizens when they are children. This number can also provide them with a child tax credit. 

Only their parents need to show the number of them while filling out the forms. People who weren’t born in the US need to provide US citizenship or lawful alien status. All these social security numbers work as citizenship proof.

Nevertheless before applying for social security payment, one must show their original documents to the administration even if you failed to provide the original copy. You need and have to provide a certified copy issued by the administration at the desk.
