after a month that i arroved to the US my SScard never arrived,i called but the women that answered didn t have any idea about appling for the ssn as part of the visa process .

i went to the ss office and took my passport, green card ,birth certificate and the s-5 form.

the employer told me that it will take 6 weeks to get my birth certificat translated from arabic ,she didn t accept the translation that i used to apply for the visa .she said that they use only there translations!!

and i have to wait an extra week for the card to arrive.

i went to the ss office and took my passport, green card ,birth certificate and the s-5 form.

the employer told me that it will take 6 weeks to get my birth certificat translated from arabic ,she didn t accept the translation that i used to apply for the visa .she said that they use only there translations!!

and i have to wait an extra week for the card to arrive.

“If the applicant has no immediate need for the SSN and the translation can be done promptly or the foreign language document is the only evidence available; have the document translated by an authorized translator and use the document as evidence.”

“If the applicant has a pressing need for an SSN, and evidence other than the foreign language document is available; request other evidence and process the application without the foreign language document.”

RM 00203.040 Reviewing SSN Evidence:

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100203040#B3

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GN 00301.340 Authorized Translators Defined:

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0200301340

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If a foreign-born person has the foreign birth certificate (BC) in his/her possession or can easily obtain a copy, he or she must submit it as proof of age. When a person is foreign-born, a BC may not exist, may not have been recorded shortly after birth, or the probative value of the document may not be high. In these situations, SSA can accept alternative evidence of age in order of probative value. The alternative evidence of age may be less than a year old, e.g., a DHS document or passport.

You can find detailed information regarding evidence that establishes age on our Website at:

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100203110

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I guess your only hope is to go back to the SSA office and speak with the office manager if you can come up with a "pressing need" reason that he or she will buy. Otherwise, you will just need to wait for the translation to be completed and periodically go into the SSA office to see if it's been completed.

Unless you had to have your birth certificate translated when you applied for your SSN, you are comparing apples and oranges and your processing time is meaningless in the stituation.

Plus I would go on to say that even if you did need to have your birth certificate translated, unless it was in Arabic, even your processing time wouldn't be of much use.

We didn't even need Carlos's birth certificate. We had his passport, I-94..but the SS card never arrived, so we went back yesterday and were assigned a number on the spot. The guy helping us did ask him for another form of Identification such as a driver's license or voter registration card from Panama. Those things were in Spanish but it didn't hold us up at all.

Why do you need the birth certificate?

mdyoung, why would they not accept the translation done for the visa? You would think that if it were good enough for USCIS it would be good enough for the SSA.

Any ideas?


Make sure you're wearing clean knickers. You never know when you'll be run over by a bus.

GN 00301.340 Authorized Translators Defined:

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0200301340

1. SSA Translators

SSA translators comprise two groups:

FO and PC employees who volunteer their services as translators and are authorized in accordance with GN 00301.345.

Central Translation Section translators who hold actual translator positions.

2. Non-SSA Translators

A non-SSA employee able to translate the language, who is acceptable to SSA under the conditions set out in GN 00301.350.

3. Acceptable Translators - Outside Territorial U.S.

-- Designated translators in the Veterans Administration Regional Office in the Philippines;

-- U.S. Foreign Service offices and designated employees of the Federal Benefits Units in the U.S. Foreign Service Posts trained in the claims taking process.

-- U.S. military translators or foreign national translators employed by the U.S. Military (outside United States).

-- Authorized employees of the American Consulate in Adana, Turkey.

-- Officials of a foreign government when translations appear over his/ her seal of office.

That's the rules.
