K-1 IS considered work authorized for 90 days from entry, you check "Allowed to work" on the SSN forms.

The only way to get temp stamp is to ask for one when entering the USA at the POE, and the only POE that consistently gives the stamp is JFK.

NOTE: K-1 is not a work visa, it is a fiancee visa for entry to the USA and marriage, K-1 is "Work Auth" primarily to be able to get the SSN, some states are strict in their interpretation of a federal law that requires persons applying for a "license" to have SSN, this can cause a problem with marriage license if only one person has SSN and the other (the K-1 holder) does not.

This is a frequent question.

Hello Everybody

i just wanna figure out how to know if i got the 90 days Temporary Work Authorization STAMP on my passport, cause i found an item when i was filling out the form to apply for a SSN saying if i am allowed to work or not and i don't know what to do here

thank you in advance

I advice that you put "Allowed to work" besides we are really allowed to work (but with condition that we have proper authorization).

Is JFK is your POE?? Because only JFK gives Temporary Work authorization and if you requested it!

My experience: When I applied for my SSN don't know what to put on that question too.. (I have no temporary work permit) so what we did is go to the SS office with that question not answered.. then when the girl process my application she put "Allowed to work".

But then the girl also adviced me (before we left the office) to go back as soon as I get my greencard so that they will replaced my SS card without the note!

After a week my SS card arrived in mail. My SS card has a note saying "Allowed to work with DHS authorization" (that means we will be allowed to work only with EAD, as long as our AOS is in process).

Hope this help!

Mayeth

Wait for your SSN, file your AOS and you have to wait for your EAD before you can be allowed to work!!!

Even if you have your SSN you are still not allowed to work without the EAD! (Remember you don't have your greencard yet!)

You're not allowed to work without EAD!!!

PS : the State is Kentucky

:no: Employers are required to ask for and verify EAD, if you don't have the card or stamp, the employer cannot hire you to work, the employer would be risking being penalized if caught.

SSA is told by USCIS to consider K-1 to be authorized with or without EAD for the 90 days of the I-94, primarily for the reason I stated above, to enable K-1 to get SSN for marriage reasons, not work reasons.

Apply for AOS, EAD, and perhaps AP. The EAD card will give you work authorization. The SSN card will say "Valid with DHS auth only" on it, this will instruct employers to ask for EAD.

and did you read what i said about the marriage , they did not ask us about my SSN so they just put one # in all the fields for the SSN

will that cause a problem when applying for AOS ?

Because i will have a proper SSN for me and i will need to fill it out in the forms for the AOS and it will be different of the one on the marriage certificate

i think it sucks

Most states have no problem with just the US citizen having SSN, that is why most have no problems getting married without SSN.

SSN is NOT required for filing I-485 for AOS either. Consider K-3's adjust status, and cannot get SSN until they have EAD or green-card.

In our case we applied for SSN after marriage, and had no problem getting the card in married name, however many report that the SSA office sometimes has problems with this, and end up applying for card in maiden name. Lastly you can only apply for SSN within 76 days after entry, after that and you will need EAD or Green-card to apply for SSN.

Hi,

This post was really useful to me, I think I have understood everything, but have one more question. I got stamped with my EAD at JFK, but this expires on June 14th, after my 90 days is up.

Will this EAD with my SSN be enough to work once June 14th has passes, or will I then need the new EAD? I know my SS card will be stamped that I need an EAD alongside it, so am a bit puzzled.

Thanks, this process is even more complex than filing for the K1!!

lilysidiq, the JFK stamp is good for 90 days and that's it. If you want to keep working on day 91, it's up to you and your employer. Many have said on here that getting the green card down the road forgives any work issues from the past. But technically on day 91 you can not work.

Personally I wouldn't recommend working on day 91.

Can you post a picture of the JFK stamp? I've often wondered what these things actually look like. They almost seem mythical.

It's just a text stamp that says "Employment Authorized" with a date hand written beside it.
