Linda L and Kathleen, et al:

I don't think it mattered whether you were employed or not... My grandmother
was born in 1885, was Russian and in 1947 when she died her DC said that she
was a housewife and farm hand... they lived on a farm... and she had a SSN.
I would check on her Death Certificate...

All best wishes

No - if you did not apply, you did not get a SS number.
Many women did not apply. Also, she was over 70 years old when SS numbers
were first issued - it's doubtful she was employed.

Does anyone know if everyone was automatically issued a SS number in 1937
when the SSA came into being? I am trying to find out the maiden name of
greatgrandmother, AGNES MARY MALLETT, who was born in 1865 and died in
1949 in
Brooklyn, NY. Would she have had to apply for a SS card and been assigned
number? How can I find out?
I would appreciate any information anyone could offer.
Linda L.
