It's the unique number the german public pension scheme the Deutsche Rentenversicherung uses to identify you. Some groups of freelancers are also part of social security, but most self-employed people are not automatically part of the public social security system. We are sorry for the inconvenience. If you want to apply for your German social security number Sozialversicherungsnummer you must be registered in Germany.

Are you missing a word in the German Spelling Dictionary? Send it to us, we look forward to hearing from you! My employers don't seem to know much about where to get this number, probably because they haven't employed anyone who isn't German before! I did it for you. Thanks very much fraufruit for your reply and thread, I read through all the posts and replies and still remain confused, everyone seems to have a different idea of what to do and where to go, and what you should or shouldn't have.
It does seem that for some people this number came automatically some time after registering, but what I did notice was that a lot of these posts and replies were from some years ago, things may have changed in recent years, so if anyone has any up to date advice to offer, I would be very grateful, and not that I am ungrateful to you fraufruit, thanks again for taking the trouble to reply.
Sorry you found no help there. Someone smarter than me will come along. Englechen might be onto something already. It not linked to being an EU citizen but entry into "social insurance" systems. I've never had one. Why can't your employer just google this? I mean even wikipedia tells them? Lili, did you find out already? I'm having the same issue.
