Include old SSN?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We're about to reapply for a greencard for me based on marriage. We lived in the US previously, we left right before my then temporary greencard timed out and I lawfully surrendered it when I moved. I do still have my SSN and the forms ask for social security number, I was thinking I should put on my old one but my husband wasn't as sure.

Does anyone know? It would make sense to me that I would just keep my old number

Your SSN is yours forever (even after death) so yes, put the "old" one. It's not "old," it's your SSN.

When you get to the IV part of your application and complete the DS 230 one of the questions is "Have you ever applied for a SSN?" If yes you have to complete the number on the form.
