2011 SSN Timeline

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been researching online about how long it takes to get your SSN after applying for it? I am anxious because I went for an interview and got a job offer but can't actually start or be officially hired until I get my SSN. I got approval for EAD and think my card should be in the mail on Monday. I seen online they say it can take up to 30 days to receive the card :S? Does this also mean it takes that long to get the number? I seen somewhere that 48 hours after applying for a SSN you can obtain the number just not the physical card....does anyone have any experience with how long to takes to get your SSN after applying and how long to get the actual card? I seen a SSN timeline on here but it is outdated from like 2 or 3 years ago...so I was wondering if you guys can help me out with recent SSN experiences in the last 6 months or so with how long it took to obtain a SSN after applying in office..... I don't see much on people's timelines about when they got their SSN.. Any advice would be greatly appreciate Thanks

I received my EAD on a Friday a few weeks back, went to SSA office on the Monday and received my SSN in the mail on Thursday. I went into the office early in the morning, and the lady took my info/passport/EAD card, left for a few minutes then came back, said it had cleared and would get card within 7 days. It was very fast.

You can go back to the SSA office and get a print out of your number the next day, I believe or you may be correct and it is 48 hours. We waited until the card did not show up after two weeks and went back to see what was going -n and they printed the application infomation with the SSN. Please make certain you are receiving USPS mail at the address where the SSC is to be mailed as Roza's card was sent back by the letter carrier. You seem to have to inform the USPS of who is to receive mail at that address otehrwise the letter carrier will decide to return to sender or not.

Go to the SSA offce and get a print out of the number as it has already been assigned. You can explain to them that you have a job offer and need the number ASAP. Then show the employer a List A form of ID for th ei-9 form (i.e. EAD card) and you do not have to show them your SSC.

Good luck,

Dave

We went back to the SSA office the following day (24 hours later), and they were able to print out the number for us. We received the actual SSN cards within a week.

Hey which items did you guys bring with you to the SSA to get your SSC? Is my passport, EAD and receipts enough? Or do I need to bring anything else? My passport does not have the i-94 stamp though.
