Online verification provides a quick way to access your Selective Service registration number and date of registration. After retrieving your registration information online, you have the option to print an official letter of verification from Selective Service. Online verification of Selective Service registration is only available for men born on or after January 1, 1960. Online verification requires a social security number. If you do not have a social security number, call us Mon-Fri: 9- 5 EST, 888.655.1825 (Toll-free).
