Removing conditions and social security card

Just wondering from people who have removed conditions if you made another visit to the Social Security office to get a new SS card? The SS card we first got while we were processing our K-1 has a note on the card about restrictions obviously due to the fact that we got the card before conditional residency was approved.

Just curious and thanks in advance for any insights.

You only need to report change of immigrations status to SSA for (NON-Immigrant to Immigrant) (AOS) and (Immigrant to Citizen) (Naturalization)

You do not need to visit SSA after conditions have been removed, your status is LPR before and after removing the conditions, no change in immigrations status.

OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

We went to the SSA to have our cards changed to one without restrictions as soon as we got our two-year green card.

Since you have not done it yet, you can do so now or when you get the 10-year green card.

I didn't even think of that.

Andre got his card after he got his green card. The SSN card had no restrictions on it. So, the answer will be no for him.

Wasn't planning on going back to visit them until he naturalized.

Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train

You can't go back for what you've missed

So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

You only get one trip
