“Undocumented parents and guardians can apply on behalf of a minor child who lives with them and who is a U.S. citizen or a qualified alien and has a Social Security number. FEMA or the Social Security Administration can help you obtain a Social Security number for a minor child (Social Security Numbers for Children). FEMA does not ask questions about citizenship or immigration status of other household members and no information will be gathered.”
