Social security card

I'm not sure if this is answer is anywhere and I just can't find it... My husband had a J-1 visa summer of 2013 so he has a social security card already that I believe says the work authorization by DHS only phrase. Once he receives the EAD, will he have to go to the social security office to update his "status"? Or do we wait until he has his green card?

To get those words removed, he needs to be an LPR. Once the AOS is approved he can go to the SSA to get a replacement card without the words. He can use the number to work once he has his EAD though, since the EAD constitutes DHS authorization.


This does not constitute legal advice.

Best to wait for GC to get the wording removed if it is improtant to do so. The only status change that you should worry about informing the SSA about is when/if he becomes a USC. He can show his GC or EAD as a List A document for the I-9 form for employment and just rattle off the SSN and never have to show the card. My card is safely kept in our bank's safety deposit box. It is also old enough to have the wording " NOT TO BE USE FOR ID. FOR TAX PURPOSES ONLY" and very few people have seen it.

Good luck,

Dave

I haven't seen my card in three or four decades. I agree with you in most instances you just give the number from memory. An exception might be for your first driver license. Many states seem to want to see that card.
