Recommended Posts

I applied for my social security card on May 19. its 3 week and till today i didnot got my social security card as i already got my green card. Today i went to Social Security office to ask about the delay and she checked in computer and told it still may take 2 weeks more coz its still in process..... i dont know what that means. One of my friend who came with me got in just 1 week.

# What may be the reason behind it?

My fiance and I went to the Social Security office to get his SSN 2 weeks after he arrived on a K-1. This was suggested because if we went too soon they may not have his information in the system.

That was 3 weeks ago and we're still waiting. When we arrived they said the DHS system was down and they had to manually verify his visa status. Well, apparently we're still waiting. At this rate we'll be married and filing AOS by the time he gets his SSN. My fiance called them this past Monday and the gentleman on the phone told him that it usually is very quick, DHS seems to be backed up right now (surprise.). He said to wait another two weeks and to call back after that. When my fiance asked what we should do if he still didn't receive it within those two weeks and the guy on the phone had no idea. He said it normally doesn't happen that way and didn't even know what to do if it took that long!
