Social Security Number question

I have read here several times that the actual Social Security number is available as soon as you apply, though you obviously have to wait about two to three weeks to get the actual card.

Is this true? Has anyone actually gotten the number at the time of going in and applying for it? My husband tried but the woman said he has to wait the two weeks to get it in the mail. I don't think that's right but he wasn't able to push it with her.

I have read of some visiting the office a week or so after applying for the number, and being given the number before getting the card.

Again behavior at SSA offices varies greatly.

Once the SSN application has been processed to establish the SSN record and issue the card, you can go back into the office (normally the next day) to obtain the number before the card arrives in the mail. Just be sure to take ID when going in the SSA office to obtain the SSN.

Normally, the card should be received within 14 days of the date it was issued.

If you're just submitting the application for a new SS# then no, you won't get it automatically. You will receive the # in a couple of weeks.

It all boils down to how long it takes SSA to verify your status. If they can do it while you are in the office and they input the application clearance right away, you should be able to go back to the office the next day to obtain the number.

My husband's status was verified when we were there waiting. She explained that there were no problems with their Homeland Security Program. It took exactly two weeks for him to get it but we were offered a letter stating that he applied for one. Also, Bridget, not sure if your husband will be different but mine's SS card stating something like work only with DHS authorization on it.
