No. The red numbers on the back of a social security card are control numbers that verify the authenticity of the card. They serve no other purpose.

Does a green card give you a Social Security number?

Not automatically; However, a "green card" (lawful permanent residency for aliens) makes someone elligible for a "right to work" social security number. One must request it at a Social Security office. A green card does not make you eligible for a "right to work" social security number. The "right to work" social security number is given to an alien that has received a "work authorization document". Having a green card will make you eligible for a regular social security number, with no restrictions related to it. In most of the cases when you are applying for a Green card, you might already have a Social Security number (this apply when the Permanent residence is through adjustment of status). This number will be the same when you get your permanent residence, only that if you had restrictions to work it will change to NO restrictions. If you are applying to a Green card though marriage, you will be entitled to apply to your social Security number once you receive the letter of approval from the USCIS

You are given a social security number the day you are born. You do not choose it. It is automatically yours to own forever.

If it is stolen, the person who has it can steal your identity and use it anyway they want, If you lose your social security card, notify the social security office as soon as possible. That person who stole it now ha become you, with regards to finances and you will be responsible for theft if you do not report it immediately to the banks and stores and everyone else you do business with.

Yes, he will. Since Social Security Numbers were established in 1936, there have been many changes in the way the numbers were assigned. The use of the number was expanded in 1943, and gradually, more and more federal agencies began to use the social security number as a way of identifying individuals applying for various government services. Given how important the use of the social security number has become since the 1940s, it is safe to say that most presidents since that time have had one. And that includes the current president, Barack Obama.

You have to call the IRS or go on its website (On the Internet, it will be given to you in minutes). and apply for a number. It is not a social security number. You will have to get an Employer Identification Number (EIN) for the trust . (as I recall, it is nine digits, like 12-3456789, not like a social security number reads 123-45-6789). If it is a trust set up in a will (which I am more familiar with), you will need some basic information, like name of decedent, name of trustees, addresses, social security numbers, date of death, etc.
