hi vj's i just want to ask if the SSN and green card will be delivered in our house or should I apply for it? I'm on IR1 route..

Hi there,

You have the best kind of visa out there, congratulations! Your GC and SSN will arrive within 2-4 weeks at the address given during interview or if new one, then the one you give to the POE (any POE). If you see that your SSN is not arriving within 6 weeks, you should head to your local SS Office and take your passport and Birth certificate with you (original).

You should be getting your welcome letter FIRST. This should arrive within 2-3 weeks, to 5 weeks upon arrival. As soon as you get this welcome letter from USCIS, your name and info has been received from the POE (The yellow envelope that your submitted) and at that point, your GC arrives 2-8 days after, and go ahead and apply for your SSN upon your welcome notice if you do not receive it within 6 weeks.

God bless,

Tam

My husband is here on CR1

he got his greencard over the weekend but no ss card in the mail

does a cr1 visa applicant need to phycially go to the SS office to apply for SS card

and

is it necessary to have the SS to apply for most jobs?

If you checked the box in the DS-230 he should get his SS card in the mail in a week or two. If it's been more than 2 weeks then you will probably have to file for it in person since many people don't receive their SS card automatically even if they checked the box.

Yes, anyone applying for employment will need at least a SS # for tax purposes.

You have to apply personally if you want to expedite your SSN or if you haven't indicated so in your DS-230.

You need to have an SSN for all jobs. Working without an SSN is working illegally in the US.
