I live in a foreign country. How do I get a social security number for my dependent who qualifies for a social security card?

You will need to contact the Social Security Administration, as the IRS does not issue SSNs. Use Form SS-5-FS, Application For A Social Security Card, which may be obtained from and filed with the Social Security Administration.
