Still no SSN

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am posting here just to get a feel of how normal or abnormal my situation is. My POE was April 18, 2015. I have read here to give it two weeks, and I was told by the CBP Officer who processed me to wait three weeks, and if I had not received my card by then, to go to my local SSA office and apply.

So on May 12th I went downtown to the SSA office with my application that I downloaded, printed off and filled out in advance. The lady was really nice. She took a copy of the visa in my passport and typed a bunch of stuff into her computer. Then she gave me a paper and explained to me what was on it. Basically it said "Before we can issue you with a Social Security number card, we must verify that the document(s) you gave us to show your Alien status with the Federal, State, or local office in the United States that issued the document(s). This may take up to 4 weeks."

Then it goes on to say that if the government verifies my visa, they will issue me a card - and if not, they won't. It does state that if my visa allows me to work, I may begin to work while I wait. That's cool - but time is ticking on the driver's license thing.

Anyway, I am wondering if anyone else has run into this roadblock. It has been over a week since my visit to the SSA office and I am starting to get antsy. My green card is in the mail already and at this rate (knowing how fast Immigration moves) I will no doubt have it before my SSN.

Thanks for any feedback! :)

It's nonsense I was told the same thing about my daughters SSN....6 weeks later after calling and calling, we went down to the office and asked for supervisor. Turns out they mixed her name up in their computer system, therefore they could not verify her identity. Instead of being honest when I called them 4 separate times they just led me to believe it was bc we were Canadian and they were waiting to verify identity. 5 days later as if by magic her SSN card appeared in the post. So do not wait go and ask for a supervisor. Hope this helps

Yes, I think I may do that if it doesn't come by next week. You would think that a visa issued by USCIS in my passport with my picture on it (after the scrupulous background checks) would be enough, but hey, what do I know?
