    Notify IRS about your new SSN & rescind ITIN
    Individuals who are not eligible to receive a Social Security Number (SSN) instead get an Individual Tax Payer Identification Number (ITIN).
    An alien individual can't have both an ITIN and a SSN. Therefore, once you receive your SSN (e.g., after getting an EAD), you will have to rescind your ITIN.
    After you receive your new SSN, you will have to send a letter to the IRS ITIN Unit requesting a rescind of your ITIN. The SSN will become the primary number and must be used for all future filing purposes. The IRS will void the ITIN. All prior tax information under the ITIN will be associated with the new SSN.
    Send a letter to:
    Internal Revenue Service
    ITIN Operation
    P.O. Box 149342
    Austin, TX 78714-9342
    Enclose the copies of your ITIN and SSN.
    You will then receive a letter from the IRS confirming that your ITIN was revoked and to use your new SSN for all tax purposes.

    How to Transfer Your Credit History to a Newly Assigned SSN
    When you are assigned a new Social Security Number (SSN), your previous credit history will not automatically transfer. Credit history is not kept by the Social Security Administration. Instead, the three major credit bureaus, Experian, TransUnion and Equifax, keep their own records of your credit history. Therefore, to transfer your credit history you will need to notify each of the credit bureaus directly and provide evidence of your claim.
    1. Contact your current lenders and inform them of your newly assigned SSN. They should begin to report your credit under your new number.
    2. Type a letter to the credit bureau, explaining that you have a new SSN. Keep the letter simple and to the point. List all previous numbers you had credit under and any previous names you used. Request that your account be listed in your new credit report.
    3.Print four copies of the letter, one for each of the three credit bureaus and one for your own records. Sign the three copies for the credit bureaus.
    4. Address one envelope to each credit bureau, affix a stamp and write your return address. The three credit bureau addresses are as follows:
    Equifax
    P.O. Box 740241
    Atlanta, GA 30374
    Experian
    P.O. Box 2002
    Allen, TX 75013
    TransUnion
    P.O. Box 1000
    Chester, PA 19022
    5. Make three copies of the document you received from the Social Security Administration informing you of your newly assigned SSN. Attach one to each letter and put each letter in an envelope. Mail the letters to the credit bureaus.
    6. Wait a month or two and request a free copy of your credit report through AnnualCreditReport.com from each credit bureau. Verify that your credit history has been transferred by each credit bureau. If it has not, call the credit bureau in question to sort out the problem.

    For those who were granted deferred action and obtained EAD, and then obtain a SSN, do not forget to transfer your credit history (if any) to your new SSN, and also update all your financial/education/etc. institutions about your new SSN. Lastly, you are required to rescind your ITIN once you obtain a SSN.

    For those who were granted deferred action and obtained EAD, and then obtain a SSN, do not forget to transfer your credit history (if any) to your new SSN, and also update all your financial/education/etc. institutions about your new SSN. Lastly, you are required to rescind your ITIN once you obtain a SSN.
    Here are some helpful links:

    Notify IRS about your new SSN & rescind ITIN
    Individuals who are not eligible to receive a Social Security Number (SSN) instead get an Individual Tax Payer Identification Number (ITIN).
    An alien individual can't have both an ITIN and a SSN. Therefore, once you receive your SSN (e.g., after getting an EAD), you will have to rescind your ITIN.
    After you receive your new SSN, you will have to send a letter to the IRS ITIN Unit requesting a rescind of your ITIN. The SSN will become the primary number and must be used for all future filing purposes. The IRS will void the ITIN. All prior tax information under the ITIN will be associated with the new SSN.
    Send a letter to:
    Internal Revenue Service
    ITIN Operation
    P.O. Box 149342
    Austin, TX 78714-9342
    Enclose the copies of your ITIN and SSN.
    You will then receive a letter from the IRS confirming that your ITIN was revoked and to use your new SSN for all tax purposes.

    How to Transfer Your Credit History to a Newly Assigned SSN
    When you are assigned a new Social Security Number (SSN), your previous credit history will not automatically transfer. Credit history is not kept by the Social Security Administration. Instead, the three major credit bureaus, Experian, TransUnion and Equifax, keep their own records of your credit history. Therefore, to transfer your credit history you will need to notify each of the credit bureaus directly and provide evidence of your claim.
    1. Contact your current lenders and inform them of your newly assigned SSN. They should begin to report your credit under your new number.
    2. Type a letter to the credit bureau, explaining that you have a new SSN. Keep the letter simple and to the point. List all previous numbers you had credit under and any previous names you used. Request that your account be listed in your new credit report.
    3.Print four copies of the letter, one for each of the three credit bureaus and one for your own records. Sign the three copies for the credit bureaus.
    4. Address one envelope to each credit bureau, affix a stamp and write your return address. The three credit bureau addresses are as follows:
    Equifax
    P.O. Box 740241
    Atlanta, GA 30374

    P.O. Box 2002
