SSN Question

4 posts in this topic

Filed: Other Timeline

My fiancée came here recently on a K-1 and we are now married. She has a social security number from 3 years ago when she came and worked one summer using a J-1 visa. The social security card says "VALID FOR WORK ONLY WITH DHS AUTHORIZATION".

My question is, does she need to apply for another social security number? We went to the social security administration office today and they told us that she can not be issued a new card until after she is approved for AOS.

What should we do? Wait until after AOS and get a new card with a new name? Will the SSN be different? On my AOS application, should we use her old SSN or leave it blank?

The SSN will not change. It is yours for life. You can use it on the forms where it asks for your SSN.

After you get the EAD/AP card in your new married name, you can get the name changed on your SSN. However, if you wait until you get the green card, then you can change your name on the SSN and get that stipulation that is printed on it removed.

Thank you for your response. This is probably a dumb question but just to be sure, when she gets her EAD will she still be able to work even though the social security card has that stipulation on it and her maiden name on it?

The "DHS authorization" IS the EAD or GC.
