You need to give it time for them to process the paperwork she submitted at the POE and get her into the system. 1 day isn't nearly enough

Give this a read: http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1flow you're at step 15. Next to step 16 is a link to the SSN guide which is here: http://www.visajourney.com/content/ssn it tells you to wait 2 weeks (something about being in the SAVE system).

** moved from "Adjustment of Status (Green Card) from Family Based Visas" to " Working & Traveling During US Immigration" as this is relating to getting a SSN **

My babe got here on the 8th :dance: , went to Social Sec admin office on the 9th and they said you have to wait 3 weeks before you can apply for a SS card. Has anyone had a different experience recently??

That is BS. It is better to wait 10 days, but since you were already there they should have taken the application. It's Enumeration At Entry for people with immigrant visas that need to allow three weeks if they checked off on the Form DS-230 to be assigned an SSN.

If you want to apply go back to the office and tell them to ready this:

RM 10213.305 Procedure when an SSN Applicant Files for an SSN within 10 Days of Arriving in the U.S or Having a Change in Status


Some aliens apply for Social Security numbers (SSNs) within days of arriving in the U.S. or immediately after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) change in status. In some cases, SAVE reflects their information but generally takes about 7 to 10 days before SAVE has the information available.

Follow this procedure when you cannot complete the SSN application because both the Initial Verification (IV) response does not allow for processing and in the last 10 calendar days either:

-- The alien arrived in the U.S. or

-- DHS granted the applicant a new status.

Step 1

Hold the SSN application 10 calendar days beyond either the date the alien entered the U.S. or the date of the DHS change in status.

Step 2

When the 10–calendar day condition is met,

-- Submit a new Initial Verification request instead of the Additional Verification request.
