New SS card after EAD and/or AOS

Did you go back to the SSA office to get a new SS card once you received your EAD and/or AOS? My hubby's card obviously says that he cannot work w/out authorization and now he has it.

Is it necessary to go back right away? We don't have much time now to make it to the office.

I know someone, who went back to the SSA office w/ his EAD, and was told that it was not necessary to change his card...that it is the EAD he needs to carry w/ him and it is sufficient. That was over a year ago, and he hasn't had any problems so far, nor has he been back to change his SS card.

We're not there quite yet...but when we are, we'll go get his card changed, just b/cuz I don't like the 'extra' writing on it. :P

Ok, I figured it wasn't necessary to have it done either since the SSN is valid and he has the GC to prove he can work. But I would like to change it in the future so his SS card doesn't look different from others - or so as not to show his GC all the time.

Thanks.

We were like you - my husband's working hours at that time were just not conducive to getting to the SS office.

But he did get it done within a couple of months.

It should be done as soon as feasible. It's great for the immigrant to produce the card at job interviews and not have those big black letters stamped all over it.

Cripes, thanks for the reminder. We haven't done that yet! I'll put it on his to-do list.

RM 00203.200 G. Procedure – Examining, Evaluating, and Verifying the Document Submitted as Evidence of Identity

2. Determine if the ID Document Has Required Information

NOTE: A non-picture identity document must have the person's name as well as information that can be compared to the Numident, the applicant or other documents submitted (e.g., age, date of birth, or parents' names). When an SS-5 is received by mail or brought to the office by someone other than the number holder, the photo on the picture identity document cannot be compared to the applicant. Therefore, unless the applicant is present and the photo can be compared to him/her, a picture identity document must also show the person’s biographical information (e.g., age, date of birth, or parents’ names) that can be compared to the data on the SS-5 and/or Numident.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So as long as the applicant has signed the application and the required documentation is provided, a replacement card application can be taken into the office be spouse.
