Question en attente de réponse

Awaiting my permanent social security number

I have submitted all my documents and received a temporary number but I need the permanent social security number for my CAF.

On the etudiant-etranger website, 3 of my documents still says "currently being processed" for almost 1 month now.

Is there anything I can do to speed things up? I need to apply for CAF urgently as I am shifting my residence

The English helpline is not being answered by anyone, please guide on how I can get assistance

Bonjour pallavi,

A temporary social security number gives you the same rights that a permanent one. The only difference is that you can't order a Vitale card or open an ameli account for the moment.

The processing times to get a permanent number (starting by 1 or 2). can fluctuate between a caisse primaire d'assurance maladie (CPAM) to another one.

Unfortunately, because of some safety and confidentiality issues, we can’t reach any of your information or file from this forum.

Anyway, if you need some help regarding this request, you can contact the CPAM.

The number changed. More information in the following topic: How to call the French Health Insurance Advice Lines?

I recommend you to contact the CAF to explain that you only have a temporary number for the moment.

Have a nice day.
