hey! i have the same problem with you! i was about to apply for my ssn yesterday but they told me they don't have any records of me arriving here in Guam. This is so frustrating, i've been here for 2 mos already!

i called the immigration here in Guam, they told me to come in their office and bring the letter SSA gave me together with my passport and i94. i'll give you an update, i think i might go there later or maybe tomorrow.

You are the 2nd person who recently said that SSA does not show as having records to complete the SS card application, makes a person wonder who is dropping the ball SSA or USCIS.

I would not worry with filing your AOS, all your documents are in the USCIS system along with the packet you delivered at POE.

hey! we went to homeland security here in won pat airport. they told me that its impossible that they do not have any record of me arriving here in guam bec they issued me the form i94, that's basically the proof that we got here in guam.

so we asked them why SSA is saying that i dont have any records! you know what they told me? I SHOULD ADJUST MY STATUS FIRST BEFORE THEY CAN ISSUE MY SSN!

so my husband and i were both shocked! because i have friends here in guam who got their ssn even if they haven't adjusted their status yet.

they also told us to go to uscis local office here in guam and make an appointment.

wth happened here in guam? did they change the process? help!!!

so, you not apply in visa name, 3 to 4 weeks after arrival, right? Why not ?

Send an e-mail to the main SSA office on their web site and explain your situation to them. The should give you an e-mail to take to the local office to resolve this. It sounds like your I-94 is still valid. you may want to go to the local SSA office and have them look you up using the maiden name and get the number that way and then go back and chenge the last name. You have until 2 weeks before the i-94 expires to get the SSN without waiting for the EAD or GC. It sounds like the people in Guam are not well trained on the dealings with a K-1 visa. Talking to USCIS is a waste of time as they can tell you one thing, but it is the SSA you want to get the card from not USCIS. The only thing of value USCIS can do is verify you are in the system and all information--name, DOB, etc--is correct.

Send e-mail NOW!!

Good luck,

Dave

We also had POE in Guam back in September 26. We applied for SSN on October 11 here in California which was 2 weeks after my wife's arrival. We got the exact same response about how there was no record and check back in 2 weeks....fast forward and we've been going back and forth with SSN and we've been in at least 4 times over the last 2.5 months and now my wife's I-94 is expired. What was crazy we even got a letter from SSN written on December 7 stating that a receipt shows we applied for SSN card on OCtober 11, the SSN Card would be delivered in about 2 weeks by December 21. Her I-94 expired Decmber 25...Now that it's expired we get a notice from SSN stating they can't issue her a Social Security Card at this time because:

Your legal immigration status and/or document(s) will expire before an SSN card can be issued to you.

The I-94 has expired and the VISA in your passport does not have the correct authorization to issue a number.

Please notify Social Security upon any change, including any extension, in you status. Thank You

Even though measures have been taken well in advance and we've followed everything SS has told us to do, now they apparently can't help us because Homeland Security's reluctance due to the expiration of I-94... The local SS office, it's been moved up the chain to someone in regional let's see what happens next. Apparently Social Security and Homeland Security work seperately from each other and nobody seems to be willing to take the blame for whomever is resposible for this debacle...
