My Fiancee and I are married now. We went to the SS Office. They will not give her a ss card till we fill paper with ins.

Well if she plans to apply in the married name SSA is going to need to see the marriage certificate. As far as being eligible for an SSN based on K-1 status, as long as she has been here less than 76 days, she is eligible to be assigned an SSN based on her K-1 status and providing her I-94 as proof. For SSN purposes, getting married does not affect your eligiblity to be assigned an SSN as a K-1.

Which SSA office was this? I would go back to the office and ask to speak with a manager. I would provide this information.

RM 00203.210 Changing Numident Name Data

C. Procedure - Immigration Document as Evidence of Legal Name

When an alien applies for an SSN card, presume the name on the immigration document is the legal name unless the applicant presents evidence of a legal name change (e.g., marriage) that occurred after the immigration document was issued.

D. Examples of Legal Name Changes

4. Name Change to a Name Different From Name on Immigration Document

Monica Mumma Stottlemyer applies for a replacement SSN card in her married name. She:

Completes an SS-5 showing her first name as Monica, her middle name as Mumma, and her last name as Smith;

Completes the other names used field, showing that name as “Monica (first name), Mumma Stottlemyer (last name);”

Signs the SS-5 as “Monica M. Smith;”

Submits a U.S. marriage document showing Monica Mumma Stottlemyer and John Smith married last week (the marriage document shows the dates of birth for Monica and John);

Submits a driver's license with her photograph that shows the name Monica M. Smith; and

Submits a DHS employment authorization card with her photograph and showing her name as “Mumma Stottlemyer, Monica.”

The U.S. marriage document supports the legal name change and is acceptable evidence of identity in both the old name and the new name because it shows biographical data (date of birth) that can be compared to the Numident record. Further, the name to be shown on the SSN card agrees with the name on the additional identity document in the new legal name (the driver's license).

SSA can process the name change request. Process the SS-5 to have the name “Monica (first name) Mumma (middle name) Smith (last name) to be shown in the card and enter “Monica (first name) Mumma Stottlemyer (compound surname) as an “other name used.” The compound surname must be entered the same way it is shown on the immigration document. Advise the NH to also contact DHS to change her surname to “Smith” with that agency.

Make sure you point out it says ADVISE to report the change, not MUST before the application can be processed.

How many days are left on her I-94? If it's 14 or less (in other words, day 76 in the country or later) then she will not be able to get an SSN issued until she has an EAD. If there are more than 14 days left on the I-94 then the agent was probably wrong to deny her. Read the VJ guide for SSNs for K-1s, print out the relevant SSA guidelines and take them back to the office. Demand to speak to a supervisor if you still have trouble.
