A proud, national defense partner
Our agency is the premiere source of talent in the event of a national emergency. We are our nation’s best insurance policy. Our mission is to register men and maintain a system that, when authorized by the President and Congress, rapidly provides personnel in a fair and equitable manner while managing an alternative service program for conscientious objectors.
If you’re a man living in the United States, you’re required by law to register with Selective Service at www.sss.gov once you turn 18.
Registration has multiple positive outcomes, as it:
Strengthens our country through readiness and preparedness
Ensures a fair and equitable system
Creates job training opportunities
Keeps you eligible for financial aid
Opens federal employment opportunities
Streamlines American citizenship
Eliminates fines and penalties associated with failure to register
