Having lived in US before, getting SSN? (split)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just at the SSN office in San Diego and was asked for my birth certificate although the lady immediately said after she asked for it that she might not need it.  She did end up looking at it though. 

 

She also asked about whether I have ever lived or visited the States before and when that was. However since she was mumbling the entire interview I only understood that she asked for whether I have ever lived in the US. So I said yes and told her the exact dates. My fiancé told me afterwards that he thinks she asked for both the visits AND when I lived here. I've been visiting the US like 8 times and except for the time when I was living there, I didn't mention it now. Is that bad? My fiancé didn't bother about correcting me because he was told that he is not allowed to answer any questions for me. In addition she said that if there are any discrepancies between what I'm saying at the SSN interview and at another interview at a later date, I would get into trouble. So here I am wondering whether it's bad that I didn't mention all my other visits to the US.

 

Were you guys asked a similar question about your visits?

1) I would suggest starting a new topic so ppl can read this, it's not very visible here in this thread.

2) WOW, I was not aware of SSO conducting immigration interview... lol They only need to verify your current status against the SAVE db which is what is on your i-94. Basically their job is just to verify that your eligible by immigration status and SS policy...

3) No I was not asked anything like that at all... and me and my now hubby both sat down with the lady and had a conversation really... 

4) My best guess would have been that they want to check if you have had a SSN before maybe... but the way you described it seems like a weird way to go about asking!

 

edit: I'll ask if mods can split your post to a new topic.
