Can fiancé use an old SSN or get a new one?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance worked in the US legally in the early 90s and was given a SSN at that time. When he left, he didn't keep the card and can't find the number on any old records. Poking around the SS website, it looks like we have to wait until the K1 visa is approved before they would give us he SSN. It doesn't look like they would issue a replacement card if he's not authorized to be here yet.

My question is do we apply for a new number or ask them to find the old one?

Please read the following from the SSA - http://tinyurl.com/jwn998z

We can assign a different number only if:

  • Sequential numbers assigned to members of the same family are causing problems;
  • More than one person is assigned or using the same number;
  • A victim of identity theft continues to be disadvantaged by using the original number;
  • There is a situation of harassment, abuse or life endangerment; or
  • An individual has religious or cultural objections to certain numbers or digits in the original number. (We require written documentation in support of the objection from a religious group with which the number holder has an established relationship.)

When we assign a different Social Security number, we do not destroy the original number. We cross-refer the new number with the original number to make sure the person receives credit for all earnings under both numbers.

People who want to ask for a new Social Security number must:

  • Apply in person at a Social Security office;
  • Complete an application;
  • Provide a statement explaining the reasons for needing a new number;
  • Provide current, credible, third-party evidence documenting the reasons for needing a new number; and
  • Provide original documents establishing:
    • U.S. citizenship or work-authorized immigration status;
    • Age;
    • Identity; and
    • Evidence of a legal name change, if appropriate.

Ok....that was what I was thinking. The number will be the same. Is there any way to find out what his number is? The website didn't make it sound like there was...at least until he's here on K1.

If he doesn't know then the only way to find out would be by visiting an SSA office in person; it isn't something they will release either to you or to him remotely.
