As a condition of eligibility, a household participating or applying for participation in the Food Stamp Program shall provide or apply for a social security number for each household member.  The individual without a number may participate as long as the case record is documented that an application for a social security number has been completed, or that good cause exists for not completing an application.  Failure to provide or apply without good cause for a social security number for each household member will result in the disqualification of the individual until such time that the individual complies with this requirement.  Local county departments of social services shall keep social security number applications and shall help food stamp applicants and recipients complete the forms and obtain their social security numbers.  Applicants and recipients may, at their option, apply for social security numbers at Social Security Administration offices.
