We just had something wierd happen. A few months ago my wife got her conditional greencard based on a k-1 visa. We had a social security card, and then after she got her greencard we went ahead and changed the name on it. Now through the mail, without being to the ss office in quite some time, we got a second social security card...The first one had the DHS work authorization on it, well this new one that we got doesn't have that. We still have a way to go before ROC...and I have no clue why they sent this to us. We did recently get her name put on my car title...but that shouldn't have had anything to do with it. I've got to call them and see whats going on...but there closed right now. I figured I'd ask on here too, especially since it don't have the DHS authorization on it. I'ts got me a bit worried...let me know what you guys think....thank ya

I don't quite get why you're confused. You essentially requested a new card when you went there and changed her name on the old one. They have to send you a new one which will match the rest of her documents. The second one doesn't have the DHS work authorization because now that she has a green card, she no longer needs any authorization from DHS to work. Her green card says she is allowed to live and work in the U.S.

Sorry for the confusion. We did get her name changed ect. on the second card that we got back a few months ago. That card had the DHS work authorization on it though. I actually went back and asked them why the work authorization wasn't taken off and they said that she will have to be a citizen first. So I accepted that as the rule, and didn't question it. I do remember when we applied for that card they said that it will have to be cleared with USCIS first. Well, the card was sent anyhow but it had the DHS on it. So, I put two and two together and just accepted what the ss office said to be fact. So, that clears it up for me. It was just wierd that we got that card without requesting it or anything. The last card we got was actually the one that we requested...so for them to send us another one took me by suprize. Thanks for the reply...

As a GC holder, the SS card shouldn't state that. No, it's not for citizens only, it's also for GC holders that the card doesn't state that.

But now its resolved cool.gif
