Actually it makes sense. To truly "prove" ones existence, or to apply for many official licenses/accounts/etc. you need more than one document of identification. A birth certificate is a valid form of identification but it can be faked. To really prove you exist, you need to provide other forms like a social security number and a drivers license. Showing up in person to resolve the situation wouldn't hurt either.
16- it doesn't make sense at all. How can you be a citizen if you don't exist? I think its safe to assume they have all other relevant info since they didn't say the issue was missing ID, they said her birth certificate only proves she's a citizen, not that she exists. But if she's been born, and she's a citizen, and they've spoken to her, then she must exist. They're just being dumbasses.
I think by "not exist" they meant the birth certificate might actually belong to a dead person. So it proves they WERE a citizen at one point, but not necessarily any more. When I applied for my passport I needed two pieces of ID and at least one of them had to be a recent photo ID (I used my license).
59, I know it doesn't sound logical, but the government can't assume a birth certificate proves existence. I'm sure OP has plenty of other forms of ID but maybe they were never officially used through the system. Think about this: criminals who launder money use fake accounts to hide their money. They fake a birth certificate and drivers license to get a bank account but the person they belong to doesn't actually exist. On paper, they pay taxes, own a home, and are a citizen, but don't exist. Ever seen Shawshank Redemption?
yep. They would prove your existence and sue you for back taxes. But is your social security number issued at birth or do you ( or your parents) need to apply for it using the birth certificate? And isn't there a record of your birth where ever they keep those records in your town/city?
