"Admission (I-94) Record Number: Not Found". Uh oh. But I've been here 11 days!

Can anyone help, I'm worried. I can't retrieve my I-94 number using the website (https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/request.html)

I arrived on a Fiance visa on 4th July. They stamped my passport and wrote on an 'A' number (but gave me no paper attachment). But VisaJourney's guide says I need my I-94 number before I can even get a SSN.

What do I do? Keep trying to see if my number appears in the government's database? Or is there some other way to get an I-94? Can I use my A# number instead?

Thank you :-)

If you haven't already, maybe try typing in variations of your name/date/etc? You have to spell it exactly as they did when they created the I-94. For example, my husband's last name is O'Lastname, but when I was trying to pull up his I-94 online it kept saying it wasn't found after he had been here for over 2 weeks. It took until I typed his name as OLastname without the apostrophe (and no space between the O and the rest of the name) before his I-94 came up. So if you have an apostrophe in your name, or a hyphen, try typing it without. Or try typing in the dates in the mm/dd/yyyy format as 07/04/2013 if you're currently doing it as 04/07/2013.

I had the same problem but worse - they haven't processed I 94 correctly upon my arrival - trip to deferred inspection site seemed to solve a problem - they have reissued old fashion paper I-94 with correct expiration date, stapled into my passport. I have submitted AOS package shortly after. Hopefully all will be fine.
