why SSN needs to block out on Affidavit of Support

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is it ok to block out or to cover SSN and Account number of a petitioner on affidavit of Support? i read that some petitioner are worried about their personal numbers/personal info.

Does it will cause problem during interview that Petitioners SSN and account number are not seen.

What if its petitioners choice to keep it private from the interview of his fiance? is it true it wont affect the documents because the important is the petitioner paid yearly taxes and above poverty and have a secure job?

Some petitioner decide to block out the numbers because before their money was lost through their SSN. And theres no reason to blame a petitioner because they want to secure money and their life. its the right of the petitioner and the SSN should be kept privately and not to show it to anybody.

What you think? thanks for everyone who will share their opinion, Godbless to America and Philippines.

Tough call. I know your fiance is protecting his/her privacy but you're just gonna make the whole ordeal harder (if not longer) on yourselves.

That won't fly.

If the US government form asks for that info, you can't "block" it out.

You will get an RFE for it most likely, or outright denial. (similar to if you fail not to "sign" it)


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

You don't need to show the bank account number, because you don't need to show a bank account, assuming you have enough income. If you are using savings in a bank account as assets for the AoS though, you will need to show the account number.

With the SSN, I cannot rememebr if the I-864 specifically asks for it but if there is a space for it on the form, you need to fill it out.

The I-864 does specifically ask for the SSN of the sponsor, and it specifically says required. I also don't think it would be acceptable to block out the SSN on the tax returns or transcripts, since this is the number that identifies that specific taxpayer from every other taxpayer with the same name. Same goes for bank account numbers - they identify the account holder.

Some consulates will allow a sponsor or co-sponsor to send the affidavit directly to the consulate, rather than having the beneficiary carry it in. However, it seems kind of silly to hide this sort of information from someone you're going to marry. Just my 2 cents...

12/29/2009 - Married in Oakland, CA!

08/18/2010 - AOS Interview - APPROVED!

the affidavit of support is I-134 for fiance visa interview. only the last 4 digit is visible on SSN and account numbers. but in my personal opinion i dont have any clue if its really good.
