A certified birth certificate copy is required for getting a US passport and when applying for Social Security benefits. It is also considered valid proof of US citizenship by federal, state and local government agencies. A birth certificate may be required when applying for some jobs and may, in the future, be required when getting or renewing a driver's license.
Gender, race, and even date of birth aren't the only areas where identity, as officially stated on a birth certificate, has been shown to be mutable. Following adoption, birth parents' names on U.S. birth certificates may be replaced with adoptive parents' names.
