Greetings to all,

Doug here. Well Dylan and I couldn't be any happier.....things are going great...just issues with the paperwork and AOS stuff. So Dylan entered this country on Jun 30th via Chicago. We married without problem here in the US on July 7th. We applied for a social security number on July 9th. At that time we were told she was not showing up in the system yet..and that it normally takes two weeks.....( she had only been in the country for 8 days at that point ) ..so we should have her social mailed to us in about a month.

We stopped by today to check on the status ...( at the local social security office ) .and they can't verify her in the system still as of yet. Now today the lady said...we usually tell people it may take two weeks to show up...but it actually can take 30-45 days. I can't really complain cuz Dylan is here with me..but you guys know you REALLY need a SSN here for just about anything. They agreed to put her on my medical insurance today without one..but said they need it asap.

Also just a funny story to add........ one time i decided to call the number they gave us on a piece of paper from the Social Security office..to try and check the status that way. Our paper has a reference number that you need to use for security purposes. One worker there told us to just call and use that number and we could check the status no problem........... however I got a girl there on the phone that kept insisting that I giver her Dylan's social security number to get any information. I actually had to say to her.. " listen to what your telling me...and tell me yourself if it makes sense..my wife is TRYING to get a social security number..yet you keep telling me I must give you her social security number in order to find out if she's getting a social security number.........

As always Godspeed to those on this journey......

Ahhhhhhhh gotta love working with government offices...

Eunice arrived Oct 28, we were married Nov 1

First applied for SSN Dec 21, first they said her passport was expired, no that was the expiration date of the K-1 visa for her to enter the country, which she did before it expired. Could not tell the difference between a visa and a passport.

Checked back 2 weeks later was told they forgot to make copies of the paperwork, they made copies.

Checked back 2 weeks later they said her I-94 was expired, applied long before it expired.

Went back with her EAD and Green Card 5 weeks ago still no SSN,

Beauracracy at it's finest.

Dec 21 to today July 21 7 months does not two weeks make.

There is no way you can contact SS Office or in case you are lucky enough to speak to an officer, expect she/he would not know what actually is the subject you are talking about.

I've been dealing with SS Officers for two months now coz I have issue too. Unfortunately, no feedback from them. Next thing I know my I-94 already expired.


God bless to everybody :)

I applied for my SSN number a month after I arrived. Then, they mailed my SSN number not more than a week after I applied.

When I applied for my SSN number, I was told to go back with my marriage certificate so that they could change my name on it.

Thats it. So now, I am just waiting for my wedding day. Then, after I get my marriage certificate, I will send my AOS papers.

This situation just makes me mad though it never happened to me when I applied for my SSN but I experience the same thing with the DMV. :angry:
