Previous social security number

Hey all,

My fiance was issued a SS# when she was previously living in America as a student.

She has since been living back in Japan for many years.

On the K-1 application- we put "none" for her SS# on the documents. I guess she didn't realize that once you are isssued a SS#, it is for life, whether you leave the country and come back or not. (Correct?)

And honestly I just wasn't thinking about it when I prepared the forms. I didn't consider that she probably had a SS# issued to her when she was living here before. (which was before I knew her)

What do you think? Will this cause a problem with the application?

She doesn't remember what her number was either. Does anyone have any ideas on what the implications of this would be?

(I tried to find previous posts in the forums discussing this but was unable to.)

Thanks!

You are correct, your SSN stays with you for life.

She could probably find the number on any of her school documents, etc. from when she was in the U.S.

So any opinions on the fact we didn't list her SS# on our K1 application?

I'm a little worried about it.

It will not be a problem with the petition. She can offer to change it at the interview, but it is not a material item that will make any difference.

Thanks Gary! That's reassuring.

So do you think at any point in the process it will become an issue? I guess maybe just after she receives the Visa and comes here we will need to go to the Social Security office and apply for a new card (with the same number as previously issued)?

No. Except that she will need eventually to find that number, she will not get a new one, they are issued for life. an SSN is not required for the AOS, but it is required for such things as bank accounts, insurance policies, etc. I would imagine the SSA can look it up for her. When she arrives you can go to an SS office and show her ID and they can get the number for you. Until then it really is not an issue or material importance. The card isn't even so important, I lost mine decades ago and haven't needed it yet. Alla put hers in her document folder and hasn't needed it since. The number is the important thing.

For some reason the Wisconsin DMV requires the card to issue an original license. So you might need to order a replacement card at some point for something. But Gary and Alla are right, the number is going to be used far more often then the card.
