EAD approved March 4 but not received until end of April, SSN still pending verification. Why?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Wife got her EAD approved on March 4th but due to some mishap with USCIS, she didn't get the combo card until the end of April. Once she had the card we went and applied for a SSN. It's been over 2 weeks and nothing in the mail yet. She called today and they said they were still verifying her EAD with the Dept of Homeland Security.

Does it really take 2 months for them to verify the EAD? Has this happened to anyone?

If it's taking this long to verify then there is an issue with her SAVE entry in the database. Some kind of name or DOB mismatch is the most likely reason. When something like this happens they have to manually verify the document with USCIS, and this takes weeks.
