Hi,

I think I have made the mistake of applying too early for a SSN. I had only been inb the country for 3 days when i applied. My info was not in the Save system and I have now been told that i have to wait 12 weeks for the manual verification. If i apply again in 2 weeks will they be able to forgo the manual verification and issue a SSN? or am I now doomed to waiting for the manual verification?

If you already submitted an application you can't submit another while the first is pending. Just keep following up on the one you have submitted.

If the SSA office does send the G-845, suggest that you go back to the SSA office no more that once week with your documents to (1) ask them to check SAVE again (2) ask if they sent a G-845 (3) if yes, did it come back (4) after 30 days ask if they have followed up on the G-845 by calling or sending another mark “second request.”

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100203735

RM 00203.735 Requesting Online (Primary) Verification By SAVE

You can try calling the SSA Regional Office if you have waited at least 30 days and your local SSA office doesn't seem to be concerned about following up on the G-845

http://www.ssa.gov/otherssasites/

Refer them to:

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100203740

RM 00203.740 Requesting Additional (Manual) Verification By DHS

Step 6

DHS should respond to SSA within 15 federal work days after receiving the Form G-845. If DHS does not respond within 15 federal work days from the receipt of the G-845 from SSA, follow-up with the DHS, USCIS Immigration Status office. (Allow 15 days plus five additional federal work days of mail time for the G-845 to be received at and returned from DHS. Follow local practice to follow-up with DHS.

Some SSA offices have an arrangement with the DHS, USCIS office to telephone for the follow-up contact; other SSA offices send a copy of the original G-845 annotated “second request.”) If the DHS response is still not received within 15 federal work days after the follow-up contact (if the follow-up is by mail allow five additional federal work days of mail time for the G-845 to be received at and returned from DHS), make a second follow-up contact. If the DHS response is not received within 15 federal workdays (again, if the follow-up is by mail, allow five additional federal work days of mail time for the G-845 to be received at and returned from DHS), after two follow-ups, contact the Regional Office (RO). Also report to the RO any trend that shows a serious deviation by DHS from the above time frames. The RO will consult with central office.

I just received my social security card today. It looks like the manual verification didn't take too long after all, infact the letter informing me it was on the way was dated 2 days after i applied, which was in turn only 2 days after I arrived in the USA. Arrived 2nd Oct, Applied for SSN 4th Oct, SS card rec'd 16th Oct. Sweet.

Well what they are supposed to do is hold your application and check SAVE on the 10th day if you apply before having been here 10 days and then send the G-845 if you don't verify through SAVE. So I suspect that's what happened.
