Question about my SSN and ead

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I hope u can help me. I got my SSN last May and it says 'valid for work only with authorization' and few weeks ago I got my EAD in the mail. Now I'm in the process of getting hired and my hr people called me and was asking for a copy of my ssn for background checking, probably coz when they did my background checking they didn't see anything coz basically my SSN is 'empty' or no records will be found. Has anyone here who had an issue finding a job using the temporary ssn (when I say temporary I only have my EAD and no green card on hand yet) thanks guys I'm really nervous I want this job so bad. I'm about to start this Monday if everything is ok with my background check

The SSN is not temporary. That number will be yours forever. That stipulation is on the SSN because you require authorization to work in the US. The EAD(Employment Authorization Document) is that authorization. Once your green card is approved you can go back to the SSA and get that stipulation removed since you will no longer require employment authorization as a lawful permanent resident with a green card.
