social Security card

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi VJ members, on the IV application my husband requested that they NVC send his info to the Social Security Admin to issue social security card. Does anyone know normally how long you have to wait for the card to arrive? Or should we just go to the nearest Social Security Admin office and get sign up for a new card?
