MS Word 2008 Document Want to insert Underlined Fields & Expand Text

I have a downloaded word doc that I need to insert some fields that are underlined into it.  I am not real familiar with Word and all I wanted to do is fill out this existing form.

I find when I fill out the fields with underlines in them they have the current style of selected text says it is expanded by .35.

I need to know how to insert a place on the document that will be underlined even when I type in text and have it expanded .35 too.

I have attached the form.  In the form on the second line it has a blank for social security number.  Please tell me how to create an undelined field with the style I need.

Thanks,

Randal

I highlight the tab symbol after pressing the paragraph key but then how do I replace it with spaces that are underlined?

I tried that and when I try to type on the line it moves and the text I put in isn't underlined.
