get it as soon as you can. i waited 2 weeks due to computer crashes problems etc at the border where i POE'd. In fact i got married and asked for it in my new married name. Now this doesn't always work due to people not being educated, however for me it did work. If you run into any problems, read the guides at the top, print out the RM that says k1 is elidgeable for SSN and ask for a supervisor who can verify that your in the SAVE database.
