Social Security Card

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Today we went to get Gbenga a social security card. I followed all the instructions and took his Nigerian driver's license and passport (with the K-1 visa and POE stamp in it) for identification. We also took his I-94 form as instructed and a copy of the marriage certificate (just in case).

Well, the employee at social security said he can't issue a social security card because they didn't put a stamp on the I-94 form, only in the passport. So he gave us a form that talks about filing for a replacement I-90 (what is an I90?) and told us to make an infopass appointment and after we've met with them, then we can come back ( and wait ANOTHER 90 minutes in their stupid office) to apply again for the social security card.

When you all entered the U.S, did they stamp your I-94 or just your passport? Are we missing a stamp because the employee at the POE messed up? Or is this another example of the employees at social security who don't know what to do with K1 visa holders? Do we have to go to an infopass appointment or should we just go to a different social security office and try again?

That's exactly what it is. As long as the I-94 has not expired then you shouldn't have any issues. Besides, an I-90 is to replace an exisiting Permanent Resident card which he obviously doesn't have.

I would go to a different Social Security office and see if you end up with a more knowledgeable person. :blush:

At the POE, did they stamp the I-94 itself, or just put a stamp near the visa in the passport?

The Immigration Officer stamped both my passport and my I-94 with the date of my arrival and the date until the I-94 is valid which is 90 days from arrival.

The SSS will need a photocopy of the I-94 with arrival stamp, among other requirements, to process the SS card application.

#######!!! They didn't stamp Gbenga's I-94, only the passport. Maybe we're going to have to wait for the EAD to get the SSN now.

Today we went to get Gbenga a social security card. I followed all the instructions and took his Nigerian driver's license and passport (with the K-1 visa and POE stamp in it) for identification. We also took his I-94 form as instructed and a copy of the marriage certificate (just in case).

Well, the employee at social security said he can't issue a social security card because they didn't put a stamp on the I-94 form, only in the passport. So he gave us a form that talks about filing for a replacement I-90 (what is an I90?) and told us to make an infopass appointment and after we've met with them, then we can come back ( and wait ANOTHER 90 minutes in their stupid office) to apply again for the social security card.

When you all entered the U.S, did they stamp your I-94 or just your passport? Are we missing a stamp because the employee at the POE messed up? Or is this another example of the employees at social security who don't know what to do with K1 visa holders? Do we have to go to an infopass appointment or should we just go to a different social security office and try again?

My recommendation is to go to the Infopass and ask for information about how to obtain the stamp. My husband had entered the country not knowing he needed an I-94 (he mis-understand the instructions, and the immigration officers at the POE ever stopped him). When we figured out what happened we went to Infopass and they hooked us up with the Immigrations Officials at the airport who were able to verify his flight information and make him an I-94 WITH a stamp.

Good luck

ditto, ours were stamped. Actually though we had to get our I-94 fixed as there were altercation, date was altered by the immigration officer. I suggest to get a new one at US Immigrations in your local city. They can make a "replacement" and copy all pertinent information so that your I-94 is valid. I have a review on my POE on my timeline, you can read how I had to go to immigration to get a replacement of my I-94. There is no fee for this, and I suggest to do it ASAP. Good luck.
