11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi... I received my work authorization since 18th of June. Applied for SSN on 22nd of June, up till this moment I havn't seen the sociAl security card. I went to the office to request for the number but they told me homeland security is yet to verify my credentials. is this normal? I have heard people say they collected their SSN before the actual card. I wonder why my case is different

sorry, it takes time to get the verification done, and the verification is absolutely required based on your type of adjustment.

I went to SSA office just today with my EAD, lady told me to wait 4 weeks for my SSN, because they need time to verify my documents. She also told me to call them after 4 weeks if I don't receive it by then.

not same entrance and adjustment as others. or you missed a time window prior.

I have old ssn that she told me I can still use, until I receive new card. I started working this week, so I was scared that it might mess things up, but she told me I should be fine. I just don't know why it takes so much time, I thought that it will be 2 weeks max.

if you had applied prior during your 90 day window as a K-1 visa holder, in visa name,

you would have had the card sooner.

Can you recall, what prevented you from going in to a SSA office with a printout of the electronic I-94 record?

I did get my ssn 3 weeks after I came to US, but it was on my maiden name. I went back to ssa office to change my name to married, to have it match my EAD.

ah -- got it.

sorry, your name change will take time, needs DHS verification. It's not enough to show the EAD card to the clerk at the SSA office. I wish there was some automation about it, for real time checking.
