Hello All!!!

Greetings to everyone on here especially those going through the long wait to get their petitions approved and waiting for NVC etc, its a very long hard wait but keep the faith. I got to the US on Feb 17th, couldn't inform ya'll because I couldn't get access to my personal email (all thanks to yahoo) and thus couldn't log on. But I finally got through today, yipee!!! Anyways I have a problem, I still don't know if we ticked the section on ELIS for SSN and I have been to the local SSN office to apply for it but was stunned by what I was told. They said they can't issue me a SSN because the visa on my passport has expired, I have been here for almost 3 weeks now & green card has not been sent. Tried to explain to the SSN officer that the visa was just for me to come to the US but all that didn't help at all. I am here & can't do anything, tired of sitting at home all day watching TV and getting annoyingly fat. I need to go out there & look for a job which I can't do without a SSN. Even get a drivers license is tired to me having a SSN & I just feel really frustrated. What can I do? How do I get through this huddle? I thought it wise to share my problem with you guys because you offered me the best suggestions and advise during my immigration process which was a huge success. I count on you again to lead on what next to do.

Thanks and God bless.

You talked to an idiot.

An endorsed immigrant visa serves as perfectly acceptable proof of LPR status for any official purpose, including for the SSA.

You should return to the SSA office and ask again. If they continue to be stupid, ask for a supervisor. If the supervisor is stupid, ask for their supervisor, and so on. Printing out the page I linked and showing them would probably be a good idea, too.

Hello!!!

Your response and link was very useful, was in Kerville where I went to apply for SSN and was so frustrated with what the lady said. Will go to San Antonio next week and see what I can do about the SSN. Also, the officer told me I will be getting an IR1 and changed it in the appropriate section in the visa and also wrote it in the stamp section, does this mean when my green card comes I will be getting a card valid for ten years? I plan to go to SSN office in San Antonio soon. Whats your take on that???

Yep an IR1 is for those married 2 years or more when they arrived so you would get a 10 year green card.
