Getting SSN

Hi all,

My fiance will be here in about two weeks :D and I had a question regarding getting his SSN. I've read about waiting the two weeks after crossing the boarder so his name will be in the SAVE system, but what if we get married before the two weeks and have our marriage certificate already, can we just go in with that? I know two weeks isn't a long time to wait, but due to my work schedule, it would be a lot easier if we can do it sooner.

Thanks in advance

Robin

Check with the local courthouse where you will get your marriage liscence to see if a SS# is required. Some places do require it, some places don't. It's not the same everywhere.

We don't need his SSN for the licence, I mean can we take the marriage certificate after we get married to the SSN office to get it before the two weeks.

The marriage cert isn't going to get him his SSN faster, being in the system is what starts the ball rolling. I think you're asking if you can use the marriage cert instead of being in the system, correct?

Wait the 2-3 weeks and then try applying, if he's not registered in it, regardless of being married or not, he won;t be able to apply for his SSN.

Yeah the marriage certificate really has no bearing on things. The wait is because they need time to process the paperwork from the POE to the SAVE system.

You may have seen references to bringing the marriage certificate, but that's for people trying to get a SSN done in their married name, and need to show proof of the name change. Unless he's changing his name, he won't need it ;) lol

I have a friend that did that.

It seems strange to me :blink:

Just make sure that when you fill out the application form you check the "legal alien allowed to work" box for section 5. I know right now you are not able to work, but you will down the road. If you don't check this box you will most likely have an issue getting a card.

ah - foreign fiance is male. That makes things much easier than a female fiance/e who wants the new married name in the SSN card.

Yup - wait 2 weeks from POE date, then on Day 16, go in, apply - bring passport and birthcertificate.

use the search engine here - term is 'SAVE', then enter my username on the limit thingie.

I've written up, several times, about SAVE database, and how to wrangle at the SSA office.
