Letter stating SSN to be received in 2 weeks?

Hello all,

This might seem like a silly question but i just wanted to ask from your experiences.

I applied for my SSN last Thursday, the worker told me that he couldn't verify me in the system and to come back in two weeks. Having spoken with my lawyer he suggested i go back and try again the following day because they should have atleast put through a pending application. I took my lawyers advice and did this and the worker in the SSA office went through the interview and then photocopied my documents and eventually gave me a letter to say I will receive the SSN in two weeks. Would me receiving this letter mean that it was approved and verified? or is this a standard thing and it could take much longer?

Thanks for all of your help.

I went into my local SSA office after waiting three weeks (the CBP officer who processed me at POE told me to wait three weeks before going in) and they couldn't verify me, so they took copies of my CR1 and gave me a letter saying that it could take 30 days to verify me, as they had to sent the docs to Immigration. I think I am going to have to kick up a little stink soon, as I have been here over a month and even my green card has arrived. How could I not be in the system, right?

I think it a standard form they give to everyone. I have read cases on here of people being lost in the system because of maybe a misspelled name, or whatever. Good luck, hope yours comes soon!
