People on US social security records can now choose their own gender

In the United States, people can now choose their gender on Social Security Number (SSN) records. 

Kilolo Kijakazi, the United States Acting Commissioner of Social Security, announced that the option to choose one's own gender is now available on Social Security Number (SSN) records.

“The Social Security Administration’s Equity Action Plan includes a commitment to decrease administrative burdens and ensure people who identify as gender diverse or transgender have options in the Social Security Number card application process,” said Acting Commissioner Kijakazi.

“This new policy allows people to self-select their sex in our records without needing to provide documentation of their sex designation.”
