    Is anyone else having trouble registering online for the Selective Service (it says to register on the PTR packet)? The database won't recognize my social security number, so I have to send in my Selective Service registration via mail, the only problem is that it won't give me a registration number (which I need by May 14) for another 60 days. Any suggestions?

    Not sure if these are the issues with registering online, but are you using your name as it appears on your social security card? Are you sure you're not entering the dashes or blanks or anything? Has your address perhaps changed and you failed to notify Social Security? I'm not sure what they are trying to match up to verify your identity but perhaps those are the issues with registering online?

    It might be my moving to California from Chicago in 2011. Thanks for the help.

    I mailed in the registration form to the Selective Service Department, so hopefully that goes through. Do you think there will be issues with me putting "number not known yet" on the PTR?

    I don't know what else you can do other than call admissions and seek their guidance on this.

    There is nothing wrong with "number is not available" because if you are under 18 you can not even register yet.

    And it is form SF-86, section 14.

    Thank you...very helpful. Clearly, we need to pay better attention to the details over here.
