    Go here then look either under the section of Check a Registration or Men 26 and older
    I'm sure you know this but there are more ways than one to get documentation. If you know you registered and at one point were mailed a card, do not accept No for an answer. The governments inefficiency is now your problem, unfortunately. You will just have to jump through a few more hoops

    Back off him, Pal. He's trying to figure out how to get hired. The least you could do is help him. Didnt you need help at one point or another? Or did you save everything mommy and daddy told you to? I dont know a soul who saved that card. Most applicants call the SS to get their number. Why do you think most applications and CQ's have the SS number and website printed right next to the question? hmm?
    Actually "pal" I have mine right here in my file. However, I enlisted at 17 so I wasnt to worried about it, but managed to due my duty and register and keep the card. I pretty much saved everything mommy and daddy told me to. Id say its served me pretty well.

      Here, go to this site, enter your name and social security number and see if you are on file:

        I did regiseter on my 18th birthday. I remember my dad forced me to fill it out and mail it. I remember exactly where I mailed it. I have contacted the SS and spoke to someone there. They said it probably got lost in the mail. They also said that they sent correspondence to me regarding my non registered status. I have never moved from my residence. I asked for copies of the correspondence and they refused to provide me with anything. I am the oldest of five kids with three younger brothers. All of them are registered but I am not. My dad has all their cards but not mine.
        After speaking to the SS I completed the request for status information letter and their response was that My failure to not register was not knowing or willfull and that it is up to the department to proceed or not.

          You must understand that no agency - POST or Selective Service - holds the magic wand to get you hired. It is always up to the agency where you applied. Perhaps there is something else in your package that is causing the agency to reject you and they are using, or YOU are inaccurately surmising, that the lack of a Selective Service Registration is the reason. You may not meet the agency needs. Accept it and move on. Apply elsewhere.

            I was put through a complete background investigation and passed everything, and they told me that if I had that number then I would have been hired.

              Maybe the passage of time will help. I've only seen it up a few times in my application processes, but I'm nearly 40. At some point it is moot.

              Now, if you wanted a federal job and you didn't register within 3 months of your 18th birthday then you would be SOL.

              You are aware there is a website where you can get your registration number, right? This is how I got mine. I was 35 when I started applying and had to provide it. I was SOOOOO lucky to find this otherwise I'd be in your boat.
