On the 129F we submitted, my fiancee, the foreigner, had a social security number over 25 years ago. She has no knowledge or record of it's number, never received any benefits from it. We asked an attorney on-line what should we fill in for the box "Social security number if any". He said leave it blank as she does not know it. In the upcoming future packet 3 forms there is a specific question for the fiancee "Have you ever had a social security number?" This of course we would answer yes. So...in a round about question, my fiancee is worried sick that they may deny us because we did not disclose that she had one almost three decades ago but does not know it and has not used in in over 25 years. Will this be a potential "red flag". Any factual perspective of this would be greatly appreciated.

we are in the same boat. but because that was a long time ago- i didn't have the time to recall number so i let it remain blank in the application.. but for nvc matters like immigration forms i really don't know if ssn is needed. its just a matter of checking yes or no. we will wait for experts what can they say... there are even usc's who have more than 1 ssn.

It is not a material issue. The best answer is YES they have an SSN and the number is "unknown" You CAN find out the number but they will likely have to go to the SS office and show ID to get that. Numbers are issued for life, so the number is still there.

It is what it is, but it will not matter for visa issuance or petition approval.

Here are the questions regarding ssn for immigration:

1. Have you ever applied for ssn? if yes

2.Give the number

3.Would you like to receive a replacement card?(this is the 43b) answer y or n

Under No column

4.Do you want SSA to assign you an SSN and issue a card? [You must answer yes to question 43b to receive a number and card card.] answ: y or n

My question is the SSN that was given to me a long time ago was not the immigrant type so will I still use it or will I answer all of above give my ssn and also check no 4...hoping to get a new number and a new card or just leave it blank... if i use my ssn for employment i may have a difficulty now that i will be an immigrant i think i need to have a new number...

1. YES

2. Unknown

3. No

4. no

When they arrive, go to a SS office with identification and you will get a replacement card. The number is issued for life, you will get the same number

SSNs have nothing to do with employment and do not authorize employment reagrdless what it may say on a card. My wife is a citizen and her card still has the "not valid for employment" on it. So what? Bury it in the sock drawer and forget it. ONLY USCIS can authorize employment with a green card, work visa, EAD, etc. having an SSN does NOT make you eligibe for work. Even citizens have to prove eligibility to work. We show a passport or birth certificate. We have to fill out the I-9 also.
