I would assume that they can't give you a Debit account because you don't have a SSN. Debit cards are also used as credit transcations.

Here is a link for more information in regards to obtaining a SSN. Here.

Each bank can set up their way of doing business. Banking is a state thing, so no one way for the whole US either. Try a different bank and see what they say. Some K1s can't even get an account at all.

Yes, get SSN in maiden name before the wedding. Look at the VJ menu bar. Click Guides. In the right column you will find the best and most detailed info on getting a SSN. Look for the link.

Edit: ah...I see you got handed the link while I was typing. Follow it.
