SSN card application answer to #3 for K1

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, my fiance and I are going to apply for his SSN card tomorrow. In question 3 on the form SS-5, it asks if he is a "legal alien allowed to work" or "legal alien not allowed to work" or "other". How should he answer? He got the employment authorization stamp on his I94 when he entered at JFK on Oct 1. So do we put he's a 'legal alien allowed to work?"

Thanks for your responses. I was sort of surprised this wasn't answered in the "SSN Guide" (unless I missed it)

Cheers,

Rebecca and Ahmed

I have read a lot on here and other areas that the temporary stamp given at the POE in JFK is not worth the paper it is written on. Apparantly, the I-9 form that you have to fill out when hired to work changed in Feb of this year will not allow a K-1 temp work permit until the AOS is filed and you have the EAD. I am not sure if this correct but there are a lot of people that have confirmed this. I would make sure before your fiance goes to get a job...I hope this is not the case but I am thinking that it is..

I applied for SSN around 2 weeks ago and I got a mail today saying they cant issue me a SSN because they didnt receive doc's showing my age, identity, my legal alien residence in the US... I felt like crying... what are they talking about? When I was applying for SSN they made copies of my birth certificate, passport, visa...what more do they need??? :crying:

Once again, looks like you need to head back to the office with your documents to find out what is going on.
