is IOE# same as Ellis Account#?

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Happy New Year All!

About to begin the paperwork to remove my conditions. (CR-1)

Quick question on the new I-751 form please;

It asks for your ELIS account # I can't remember mine. On the research I have done on this site a helpful post said the ELIS# is the same as the IOE# on the back of the green card?

I looked at my green card and it does have an IOE# upto 10 digits yet the new I-751 form has a field for 12 digits?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Here is what I found with a Google search. Unfortunately, it still doesn't help me understand. What is a "benefit request" and when do you get one???

I'm thinking that most of us (CR-1) doesn't have an ELIS number.....

Q2. How are applicants and cases identified in USCIS ELIS?

A2. USCIS uses Alien Numbers (A-Numbers) to identify applicants in USCIS ELIS.

USCIS ELIS also creates a unique online account ID number for each user

(applicants, attorneys, and accredited representatives) after he or she files a benefit

request. Once a benefit request is filed, USCIS ELIS assigns a case number (e.g.,

Case ID 123-456-789) that replaces receipt numbers. Receipt numbers will still exist

for paper submissions and any benefit requests submitted through the currently

available e-filing system.

if the ELIS fee was paid, there's an email buried somewhere, almost 2 years ago, containing the ELIS Account # and/or login credentials.

Dig a bit, I bet you have that email, still,

A benefit request is applying for a greencard, applying for work authorization, applying for removal of conditions, applying to USCIS for anything.....

I dug a whole lot. Luckily I only have one email address.

A few emails from automated ELIS system none of which references my account number.

Also tried to get my account online at ELIS by filling in my email address and asking for my password prompt (been 2 years can't remember the password) they asked me three security questions one of which I got wrong. Now locked out. Damn.

Not sure what to put on the I-751 form for ELIS# - maybe just leave it blank?

i hate the ELIS system in toto,

so keep that in mind if I give any real advice about this -

which would be:

in the blank asking for it, write in 'see attached'

and then write in a letter of attestation:

I never could get into the ELIS system, it's been broken for the two years that I've had to use it - so YOU look up any ELIS numbers that you think I have, and send them/it to me on the attached postcard that's stapled to this letter of attestation .

:D

Thanks for the response (LAUGH)

Is it risky to just not fill out the ELIS field and leave blank - do you think they will reject and send back my petition to remove conditions?

I may call them tomorrow as my account is now LOCKED.

(Fingers crossed I get a good staff member)

are you still in NYC? IF yes, I say go into the local office via an infopass appointment, get the clerk behind the window to give you all of the numbers you need.

screen prints from the ELIS system would be a boon, as well, since yer there.

I took the hard way and called them this morning after 45 mins eventually spoke with an Immigration Officer who told me to just open a new ELIS account (Which I did).

Spent 15 mins doing this only to have the account not list my account # so I can get online no problem but there is no account #... man ELIS sucks!

Personally I noticed people recently getting numbers that weren't the IOE numbers I mentioned before. I wonder if one of those is the ELIS# now. You could call the USCIS and ask for help (as much as they can be helpful I suppose.) But I'd leave it blank if you can't find it.

I can confirm that the few emails (and we kept all of them) from ELIS did not contain the Account ID number. On your second point, I'm very sorry to hear you were locked out. I would definitely call USCIS to see if they can help you out, and at the very least, you could include in a cover letter to your application that you tried to call USCIS and were told they couldn't help (but who knows perhaps they can!) You can't be denied ROC for forgetting an account number. The worst that can happen is that it delays processing, IMO.

I hope this doesn't make you feel bad, but if anyone else is interested, the ELIS "View My Profile" button shows this the USCIS Account ID, like this: https://imgur.com/g2asvxu

To view USCIS Elis Account number, login to ELIS. Then go to "View My Profile" and under "Account" tab, you will see USCIS Account ID.

This account id is 12 digit number and this is the USCIS ELIS account number.
