I-485 and no I-94 # or experation/SSN questions

I'm not sure if this is common or not and I don't want to send in our forms without required information, so any advice or experience you would share is appreciated.

I'm Canadian and recently married my husband (USC) on a recent visit to the US. We've decided to file for AOS while I stay here with him and when filling out my I-485 I've run into some confusion. The form asks for my I-94 number and its date of expiration but I don't have this, and am assuming most Canadians aren't issued I-94's while crossing into the US. Should I just leave this information blank? Is this okay/expected from their end?

Also, while I'm at it... I have a SSN from when I used to have a Student visa. I am no longer a student and my F-1 status has expired etc. some time ago. Because my SSN was acquired when on the F-1, is it wrong to include this number on my I-485? I don't know if I should have "cancelled" my SSN, or if I just keep it and once granted permanent residency they lift the restrictions on the SSN?

Thanks in advance

Canadians are not issued I-94's

SSN's are issued for life


YMMV

You could not even cancel your SSN if you stepped right in front of a train screaming "Lord take me in your arms." Even tens of thousands of years from now, when we long have joined the Confederate Star Fleet, nobody will be assigned your SS # ever. You own it for life, death, and whatever comes after that.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
