Hello. We just got married Sunday after my husband entered on a k1 visa. He went down to the social security office today to apply for a card and they told him they need the i-20. What is this? I have not heard of it before. Thank you!

They think he is a student, the I20 is what students get from the school which they use to apply for a student visa

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I-20_(form)

Go back, go to a different person and try again

Good luck

He went back down to the office and they are insisting he needs that number! Grrrr. Now he did enter on a student visa in august 2008 to study at a univerity here for a year. Technically that does not expire until 2013 but it would be illegal for him to use that if he wasn't actually enrolled in a scholl currently.

Do you think maybe that's why they r requiring this i20 number??? So frustrating!

They right before he was going to leave for a second time they gave him a sheet of paper saying what number e needed. It starts with a N then has ten digits.

Did anyone else ha e any trouble ft a as card?! I thought this was pretty simple n straight forward!

SO now I am confused, he is still in the US on his F-1 visa, with a current I20 that doesn't expire until 2013 AND he entered on a K-1 visa?

Can you clarify please?

Good luck

He is supposed to show them his K1 visa and his I-94 THAT is the basis for his application now. Not the old student visa. They don't need the I-20 because he's getting it based on K1.

It takes about 2 weeks for the SSA to get the information from CBP about K-1 entry.

If you apply for SSN before this, they have to send out an inquiry which takes weeks to resolve.

Much better to wait until they have the entry information, might shut them up about the i-20 too.

People have trouble all the time at the SSA office because K1s aren't their normal day to day customer, especially in small towns. Try printing this page to show them. And ask to please see a supervisor before they try to send you away again.

And do point out the K1 visa is the current valid visa.

You don't have a timeline entered, so it's difficult to figure out how long your spouse has been in the country. Normally, it takes 2 - 3 weeks for the SSA to get access to a K1 entrant's information. So I would say wait till he's been in the country for 2 -3 weeks and try again.

Sounds like they don't see the K1 yet, but they do see his student visa, so that's why they're asking for the i20. This should all be corrected after the 2-3 weeks is completed.

And do point out the K1 visa is the current valid visa.

Going to need an I-94 that shows entry as a K-1. SSA doesn't give a damn about the visa.

This is better than an FAQ:

RM 10211.420 Employment Authorization for Non-immigrants

https://secure.ssa.gov/apps10/poms.nsf/lnx/0110211420

C. Policy - Employment Authorization by Class of Admission (COA)

The following policy applies to employment authorization by class of admission:

1. Aliens Work Authorized Without Specific DHS Authorization

The following sections list non-immigrants, by alien class of admission codes, who are authorized to work in the U.S. without specific authorization from DHS. The person’s I-94 will not have the DHS employment authorization stamp and the alien will generally not have an EAD.

K-1 - Fiancé(e) of U.S. citizen

Don't let them give you any ####### about not being a K-1 since you are married. As long as the I-94 is not expired, you are a K-1.

Ask to speak with a manager if they won't take the application and you have provided your unexpired passport and I-94 (that is over 14 days from expiring) showing entry as a K-1.

If they still won't listen, send an e-mail complaint to SSA:

http://ssa-custhelp.ssa.gov/app/ask

Be sure to include the office where you tried to apply, your phone number and that you are a K-1.
