You can only use it to work with an EAD or green card.

Usually a person will apply for and receive the social security card a few weeks after coming here. It will say "valid for work only with DHS authorization". Once you have received your EAD, THAT IS the valid work authorization. You can now go back to SS and receive a new card without that ""valid only for"" on it.

Ok. So i believed that i was able to obtain. A regular social. When am i able to do this.

You have an EAD so you have met the restriction on your card. The card is therefore no different from a regular card.

When you adjust status to permanent resident you will get a regular card.

It IS a "regular social" in that it's yours for life now. It's simply restricted right now because you require and EAD or GC to work. Once you get the GC you can go back to the SSA to get the wording removed.

I went to the s.s office with my EAD 2 apply for my social and i received the restricted 1. Thats why i am wondering wth

Because you are only allowed to work with an EAD or green card. When you have the green card you go have the words removed.

They can only go back and have that removed when they receive their green card.

My SSC states very plainly on it that it is for tax purposes only not for identification, but how many people actually see my SSC? You have a number which is the most important thing. I am assuming the name is correct which is the second most important thing. Whether it states valid for work with DHS authorization only or not is not that important as you have the EAD and hopefully soon the GC. I would look at the required documents that you are required to show your employer for them to complete the I-9 form. There are three lists A, B, and C. List A items stand on their own. List B items require an item from List C. Notice where the GC is and the unrestricted SSC. I always use my US passport and boy does that throw people. You can use your GC as you will have to show it anyway until you get the restriction removed from your SSC.

The EAD allows you to work. I does not mean you are a LPR yet. That is the GC and until you receive it you are not a LPR with all the rights and responsibilities.

Good luck,

Dave

That means, although you are allowed to work, it's to alert your employer they need to see your EAD Card to know when you work authorization status expires. Until you get your Permanent Residency or your Naturalization Certificate, your work authorization is only "conditional" and/or "temporary".

When you got your Green Card, did you update your record with Social Security Administration to show you have Permanent Residency? That is very important so that a replacement Social Security card can be issued to you without the remark "Valid for work only with DHS authorization". You will then have a Card without the Remark on it. :)
