As part of the ID.me identity verification process for my Social Security, we ask you to submit a photo of yourself. Selfies help us verify your identity when compared to the photo on your government issued ID document - driver's license, passport, or passport card.
We ask for a head-and-shoulders photo, in "portrait" orientation, with your face taking up as much of the frame as possible.
