Is the I-94 enough for work?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Do you have to have an SSN to work? Since the I-94 is valid for work (until it expires), can it alone be used for work? Or must he get his SSN as well?

The I-94 is only valid for work if it has the EAD stamp on it. Also most employers require an SSN in addition to EAD before they will hire a person. The SSN is needed to properly report income taxes.

It is best to have the SSN as soon as possible, it helps with things like opening or being added to a bank account, applying for driver's license.

yassmine2878,

Find form I-9 (USCIS web site) and read the instructions.

MarocAmer,

This point of clarification regarding SSA 'receipts' from an authoritative source:

The SSA FAQ says "receipt", but the actual receipt SSA gives out is only given when the SSN is going to be assigned. What people are given when their status needs to be verified is an Acknowledgement notice, not a receipt.

RM 00202.307 Acknowledgement for Form SS-5

You do not need your SSN to be able to start work, you can use the receipt you received from the SSN office when you applied for your card. See SSN link below. (I posted the information from link below) However as soon as you receive the SSN card you need to ensure you give the number to your employer.

Question

I just received a work authorization card from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and I applied for a Social Security card today. What do I tell my employer?

Answer

If you received a receipt from the Social Security Administration when you applied for a Social Security card, show it to your employer. In lieu of a receipt, your employer may ask for some identifying information such as your name, address, date of birth, sex and parents' name. You should immediately tell your employer your correct Social Security number once you receive it.

Also, you should be prepared to show your employer your work authorization card from DHS and any other documents you have establishing your identity and eligibility to work.

It is your employer's responsibility to correctly record your Social Security number on their payroll records.
