How fast can we get ssn after entering on green card?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if if would be possible to go to the SSA office and apply for a ssn the day after entering on an IR1 and get a printout the same day. Anyone have any success or how long did it take you? Also, if one checked for an ssn on the ds230 part 2, can a printout based on that be had, if so how? Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge!

RM 00202.315 Enumeration At Entry

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100202315

Answer "Yes" to Questions 33a. and 33b.on Form DS-230

You will then need to allow at least 3 weeks to see if the Enumeration

At Entry process works. If you don't receive your SSN card within 3

weeks, it's time to head on down to your friendly neighborhood

SSA office.

Find office:

http://www.ssa.gov/locator

If you have been assigned an SSN the office can provide you with the

number. However, it is has been over 14 days from the day the SSN was

assigned and you haven't received the card you will probably need to

apply for a replacement card.

Take proof of age, identity and work authorized alien status. Proof of

age is not needed for a replacement card.

Birth certificate, passport and I-551 card or MRIV with temporary I-551

language should be enough to take into the SSA office.

RM 00203.410 Evidence of Alien Status for an SSN Card for an Alien

Lawfully Admitted for Permanent Residence

B. KINDS OF EVIDENCE ESTABLISHING LAPR STATUS

-- I-551, Permanent Resident Card

-- Machine Readable Immigrant Visa with Temporary I-551 Language

Note: The MRIV shows the alien's identification number ("A" number) as

the "Registration Number" in the upper right-hand corner of the MRIV.

If you apply in the SSA office for an original SSN or replacement card

the SSA office will try to verify your status through the SAVE system

while your are in the office. If they can't, they will send a form G-845

to immigration for manual verification. This could delay the assigning

of an SSN and/or issuing a card for weeks and some times months.

If the SSA office does send the G-845, suggest that you go back to the

SSA office no more than once a week with your documents to (1) ask them to

check SAVE again (2) ask if they sent a G-845 (3) if yes, did it come

back (4) after 30 days ask if they have followed up on the G-845 by

calling or sending another mark "second request."

After having waited at least 30 days and your local SSA office doesn't

seem too concerned you can try contacting the SSA Regional Office (RO)

responsible for your state:

Refer them to this:

RM 00203.740 Requesting Additional (Manual) Verification By DHS

B. PROCEDURE – HOW TO REQUEST MANUAL VERIFICATION

STEP 6

DHS should respond to SSA within 15 federal work days after receiving

the Form G-845. If DHS does not respond within 15 federal work days from

the receipt of the G-845 from SSA, follow-up with the DHS, USCIS

Immigration Status office. (Allow 15 days plus five additional federal work days of

mail time for the G-845 to be received at and returned from DHS.

Follow local practice to follow-up with DHS. Some SSA offices have an

arrangement with the DHS, USCIS office to telephone for the follow-up

contact; other SSA offices send a copy of the original G-845 annotated

“second request.”) If the DHS response is still not received within 15

federal work days after the follow-up contact (if the follow-up is by

mail allow five additional federal work days of mail time for the G-845

to be received at and returned from DHS), make a second follow-up

contact. If the DHS response is not received within 15 federal workdays

(again, if the follow-up is by mail, allow five additional federal work

days of mail time for the G-845 to be received at and returned from

DHS), after two follow-ups, contact the RO. Also report to the RO any

trend that shows a serious deviation by DHS from the above time frames.

The RO will consult with central office.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once an SSN has been assigned you need to allow at least 14 days to receive the card, but you can go back to the office the next day to find out what's the number and ask for an SSN Verification Printout to give you some prrof until your card arrives in the mail.
