SS # and the Rest of the Process

I posted this in another forum. Hopefully I can get some advice from you guys as well.

My fiance arrived to the USA in January. Two weeks later he applied for a SS#. The reason we filed so quickly for the SS# is because we were told that in order to get a marriage license we both need a SS# and a photo ID. However, if we married without him having his SS# he would have to sign an Affidavit stating that 1) he does not have a SS# and 2) he is not elgible to receive one. Obviously #2 does not apply to him since he arrived on a K1 Visa. Anyway, exactly one month after applying he went back to the local office and was told that they just received his information today and should be receiving a card in two weeks. This coming Wed. will be two weeks. Is it normally this long?

The reason I am pushing the SS# is so that we can move on with the remainder of the process. Without a SS# he can't get a Drivers License, be able to apply for papers to work (his POE did not issue temporary work papers), nor apply for enrollment in the community college. So many things are tied into this one #.

This whole process is frustrating. Are we on the right track?


ALL things work TOGETHER for GOOD!

Hi,

I am not sure about the SS # thing . But i thought if one comes in on a K-1 visa, you don't have to have the SS#.The main purpose of the visa in the first place is to get married to the U.S citizen within 90 days of entering on a K1 visa.

I would call the county clerk where you get the marriage license to validate that. Ask them if someone came in on a K1 visa, do they need the SS no.

I am planning to get married in Nashville,TN. When i called, i was told that my fiance needs to show only his passport showing the K1 visa stamp and and any other ID. i.e Birth Certificate.

Hope somebody else on the thread would shed some hightlights

Good luck


love conquers all things

If the SSN application was cleared to establish the SSN record and issue a card; normally the card will be received within 2 weeks.

Suggest that he go back to the SSA office with his documents. If he has been assigned an SSN the office can provide him with the number, but he may need to apply for a replacement card. Shouldn't need to verify his status again if a G-845 we sent out for verification to issue the first card, since SSA offices are supposed to hold the G-845 for 2 months after the card has been issued just for this type of situation.

If he has been assigned an SSN he can request an SSN Verification Printout. This will give him some proof of his assigned SSN until a replacement card can be issued.

What is a G-845? Is this something we are suppose to be filing? I never heard of such.

Thanks for the help.

got ours within one week of applying. I think the G form thing has to do with if you checked "yes" to generate ss number on one of the immigration forms (sorry I don't remember which one). They are saposed to generate a ss number for you, but in our case it was faster to go to the SS office and apply for one.

Best Wishes

What is a G-845? Is this something we are suppose to be filing? I never heard of such.

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

RM 00203.740 Requesting Additional (Manual) Verification By DHS

Form G-845, "Document Verification Request." The SSA office sends it to immigration to verify the SSN applicant's status when it can't be done through the SAVE system.

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

RM 00203.735 Requesting Online (Primary) Verification by SAVE

The SAVE ASVI database provides online certain DHS data online for aliens with A numbers. ASVI also provides online access to certain data for non-immigrants (aliens admitted temporarily to the U.S. (and issued Form I-94 which shows an admission number).

I think the G form thing has to do with if you checked "yes" to generate ss number on one of the immigration forms (sorry I don't remember which one). They are saposed to generate a ss number for you, but in our case it was faster to go to the SS office and apply for one.

Enumeration At Entry (EAE) has nothing to do with G-845s, unless the EAE information doesn't process and the person has to submit an SSN application at an SSA office and can't be verified through SAVE.
