Social Security Card

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the Social Security Card will come in the mail or if I need to go apply for it? We marked the box on the DS-156K...anyone know?

Not for a K-1, one needs to go apply... AFAIK there is no "box" on the DS-156K but the "box" is on DS-230 Part II

Once the fiance/e is here he/she needs to go apply in person to local SS office, wait one or two weeks after arrival to USA. Then the card will arrive to your address in about a week.

Don't wait till your I-94 expires.

Good luck

To apply for a SS card, I would simply fill out the application, bring it in along with her passport and i-94, and apply?

I would want to do this before or after we get married?

and you need to bring her as well... while it is not suppose to matter, most people find it easiest BEFORE marriage because the SSA offices can get confused

I think the sooner the better, while you are not married, then after marriage just go back with marriage certif. and have a name change.
