Yet another Selective Service Question

Hello everyone,

Here are the facts on my case. 


  • Applying for Naturalization.
  • I've been a LPR since April 2011.
  • I was living in the US from age 15 to 26 but was already 27 years old when I became LPR.
  • I did not register for the Selective Service because I was unaware of such requirement. 
  • I am 34 years old.


My questions are:


  1. On the online application there is a question that reads "Why did you not register with the Selective Service?"
    Should I provide a short sentence like "I was unaware of such requirement"? or should I be more detailed ? Are they expecting an essay type of response or a two liner is okay?
  2. Under the Evidence > Additional evidence section of the online application it reads:

    Evidence of Selective Service status

    Upload a typed or printed statement explaining why you did not register for the Selective Service, as well as a status information letter from the Selective Service.

    For more information about Selective Service registration or how to get proof that you registered, visit sss.gov or call 1-888-655-1825.

    When I go to the Selective service website I get a contradictory statement.
    From https://www.sss.gov/Registration/Immigrants-and-Dual-Nationals


    Immigrant Men 31 or Older 

    Immigrant men who are 31 or older who are seeking naturalization and who did not register are no longer required to provide a "status information letter" or documentation of their status from Selective Service.  If asked for a status information letter, these men may print a form letter concerning their request for a letter for use with USCIS HERE.

    Should I attach on the online application the PDF file the statement above points to?

    Should I also attach a PDF version of my answer to question 1 of this post?


Thank you for help.
