Default Social Security No. and Residency


Is it true that in some states i.e. California it is required for all candidates to have social security no. (citizen or green card) before applying for any clinical residency positions?

Also if someone cleared step 1 outside US and their registration and biographic information with ECFMG were recorded on their country of origin base, Can the applicants change such information once he received permanent status before the residency matching process and also before applying for step 2 and 3. in US like putting additional information of social security no. etc
