Beneficiary Already has SSN: Good or Bad?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone else applying for a CR-1 has had a beneficiary that already has a SSN? Did this expedite or impact the proceedings at all?

My husband and I met in the US, where he was a student and worked for 7 years under F-1, OPT and H-3 visas. He was given a SSN when he received the OPT and has paid taxes.

Any thoughts or input would be appreciated! Thank you in advance!

American girl and Swiss/Italian boy who met in San Francisco in 2009, moved to Amsterdam in 2014 and married in Switzerland in 2015. Both living and filed for CR-1 from abroad. (L)

I already have a SSN from long time ago. It means the same # remains. The only difference is that as I am married now and changed my last name, my SS card will be issued with new name on it. Nether good or bad, just a fact. If your existing card has expiration date (mine was "not valid for employment") you will receive the new one. Make sure fill the right info on your I-260 when you are asked about it so it will be mailed to you after arrival.
