Before assigning an NFA ID, be sure to conduct a thorough search by name and social security number to guarantee that the individual does not already have an NFA ID. If an NFA ID does not exist, you will need to assign one to the individual, which requires that you know the individual's Social Security Number. If the individual does not have a Social Security Number, please contact NFA's Information Center and someone will assign an NFA ID for you. To assign an NFA ID, click on the Assign An NFA ID link from the Individual section of the Apply For Registration Menu.
NFA's Information Center is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST. Call (312) 781-1410 or toll-free at (800) 621-3570.
