SSN and A#

Hello,

My wife has both her EAD and AOS. She just quit work and they asked for her SSN. We have not applied for the SSN and her work used her Alien Registration number in the SSN column. She is quitting in just a few days and they asked for her SSN. She gave them the card and pointed to the A#. They kind of panicked and called the main office and told her to get the SSN as soon as possible. Is there something wrong here? Also, we need to file taxes soon...Are we going to have problems filing since all her tax forms from work have the A#?

Thanks,

Chris

You need to have a SSN in order to work, pay income taxes, receive benefits and track your income tax returns, etc.

Go to your local SSA office, with your passport, GC and marriage certificate and apply for a SSN card right away. You will receive the actual card very quickly, within a week in some cases. My daughter received her card 6 days after she applied for it.

Good luck.

Chris,

You're darn right there's something wrong here - the company should never have hired your wife without verifying that she had applied for a SSN, and then within 90 days having seen and verified the card itself. The company is in violation of the law requiring it to document the employment authorization status of its' employees and is subject penalties.

They are also sitting on some money that needs to be turned over to the SSA, but until your wife has a SS number they cannot do so.

I think you may have a tax filing problem. The company cannot give your wife a proper W-2 and her return requires a SSN or an ITIN. The USCIS A# is meaningless.
