SSN for k2 ( 11-year old ) (merged thread)

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband's insurance company is asking for my son's SSN so he can be included. Unfortunately we didn't get his own because we were told he needs to change his status first ( from nonimmigrant to immigrant ). What shall we do now? How can my son avail the health insurance? He will be entering school next month and needs to get medical and dental check-ups. Please help!

Sounds like the child came over on a K2 Visa?

For the K2 visa child to apply for and obtain a Social Security Number (SSN), the child will need to apply for and obtain either a 2-yr Green Card (GC) (through AOS) and/or an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). Current AOS processing times tend to be quite prolonged, EAD cards are processed in 60-90 days. With either the EAD, or the GC, the child can fill out a SS-5 and obtain their SSN.

There are no additional fees for the EAD/Advance Parole (AP) card if the applications are submitted concurrently with the AOS application.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

My 13 year old K2 also doesn't have a SSN. We just got married a few weeks ago and haven't applied for AOS yet but i have my SSN. For our insurance forms we put N/A next to her name and then added an explanation in a cover message that we will supply this as soon as it comes available and we are preparing to make the necessary application. The school informed us that they will enrol her without an SSN.

My husband's medical insurance is too strict. The dental insurance was ok . I would suggest you apply for EAD on your child too when you file for AOS. As what they said on here, it's easier to get SSN thru EAD than waiting for the GC. We could've known this before. I will try to call the school regarding his medical check-up. I may ask if they could consider the medical records we have along with vaccinations book.

A bit relieved after my husband talked to his insurance company and promised to submit my son's SSN as soon as we get it. I mailed a follow -up EAD for him so he can apply for SSN and hopefully we both get approve! I wonder if he should get another biometric appointment after our next week appointment ( AOS for both of us and EAD only for me ).

Piece of advice to those who are applying AOS with K2: apply EAD for your K2 too! It's important in getting SSN for them.

Good to hear that things are on the right path. Report back here with any progress.

You give good advice. I have been preaching the same mantra since I first read about it 3 years ago in the "Calling All K2 AOSers.." pinned thread, located at the top of the Fam.-based AOS Forum page: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/287035-calling-all-k-2-aosers-past-and-present/

Good luck on your immigration journey.

I already applied EAD for my 11 year old as what the seniors advised. We are now waiting for response.
