Your social security number is required when you create an account within our NYC Online Teacher Application system. Please double-check that the SSN that you include with your application is your correct SSN before you click "Submit Registration" to create an account. It is very important that you put your correct SSN as we use the number that you include to verify your certification (by referencing your TEACH account for certification) and eligibility requirements to teach in NYC.
Warning: Entering a fake or dummy social security number will harm your chances of obtaining a job and possibly prevent you from gaining employment with New York City Public Schools. The SSN that you include in your application will be used during the hiring and onboarding processes if you accept a teaching position with the NYC DOE.
We will keep your SSN private and it will be used only for the above-mentioned purposes.
