K1 holder applied for SSN by new name after marriage

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, guys:

I came to U.S.last Dec.by K1 visa, and got married, then I went to Social Security Office for my SSC application two weeks ago and called them for progress status since I haven't get my card within 2 weeks. The officer told me the delaying is caused by my non-matching information with the DHS data base and they are conducting further process for verification. I guess it is because I used my new name after marriage (changed the last name) for SSC while my name in DHS data base is still my old name. The person who took my call said she has no idea on what information isn't matching but they have someone following this up and will let me know when any result comes. It may take another 1-2 weeks. I really don't wait that long again since I need the SSN for my medical insurance. So what can I do right now? Is it possible to called DHS to report my marriage and update my name after marriage so that the non-matching problem won't exist? or cancel the previous SSN application while initiate a new application with my old name?

Many thanks for any suggestion from you people.

You don't call DHS to report a marriage DHS could care less about your marriage.

Apply for AOS, you don't need the SSN for it and it should help push the SSN through.

You might want to e-mail the main SSA office on their webpage and give them a detailed explaination for your situation. It might be the person at your local office needs to be "trained" on how to proceed. It has been proven of late that the main office is very helpful and usually sends an e-mail detailing what you need to do in order to "train" the people in the local office.

Give it a try.

you probably had some problem with your A# or your visa name, as stored in the SAVE database.

SSA clerk looked you up in SAVE, couldn't find a match, so sent off for USCIS verification - which takes 30 to 60 days.

Please use the advanced search feature here - look for 'SAVE' and my user name 'Darnell' - I've written the fix often these last 5 weeks.

Good Luck !

Thank you, Darnell, I went to USCIS webpage about SAVE verification by the link you provided in another post. I guess my problem might be caused by the non-matching between my passport name in SAVE database and my new name used for SSN application. My understanding is that Social Security Office will submit/has submitted my additional information to verify the SSN applicant is the right person, so I can only wait until the USCIS confirmation of my identity reached SS Office. I am going to call SS office again tomorrow and hope it can make the process go faster. Thanks again
