My husband got a job, however, they're asking for his Drivers License/State or government issued ID #. We are both confused on where to find that on his work permit card (form I-766) as he does not have a drivers license or California ID card. Can anyone help???

if hes been living in California and has proof or residence you can get a driver license with out having a Social Security.

hi

so once he got his work permit, he didn't get a driver's license or state id?

that has nothing to do with the work permit. he has to go to the DMV to get a driver's license or state id

Tell them he doesn't have a DL or Gov't issued ID. He shouldn't have to get a DL just to take a job. It's more likely just a form they give everyone without further thought.

It is probably for the I-9. Most places just ask for a social security card and govt id without realizing there are a multitude of ids that will satisfy the requirements. https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-9.pdf Have your spouse take any of the id's listed as acceptable.

Hard to say if putting down any group of nine numbers will cause problems for him later on. Best to get the proper documentation and numbers all around.

Why is it stressful? Everyone needs an SSN to work. It's pretty simple, really. Just get one. That's it.

Don't use numbers that aren't SSN and try to pass it off as an SSN. How did that seem like a good idea?

Get the SSN. Tell the employer that there was confusion and give them the real SSN. Done.

Apply for SSN # they will give you a form as proof and explain that you are newly immigrated and didn't know as long as you have your permission to work with proof of having applied they will be ok. When he gets his card he can submit to them and they will put on payroll.

They may not bring him onboard completely until they have his SSN. You usually will not get your SSN the same day you apply, just a letter saying you applied. It can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to a month or more to get your SSN card depending on how much checking they're doing.

SSN is usually used for background checks, which is the first part of the hiring process once you have the "yeah we'd like to hire you pending a background check."


With that said, no he should not use the number on his card as his SSN.

You said he has been using those numbers as his SSN, what else has he been doing that requires a SSN? Anything he's done so far with those numbers he needs to correct once he has his SSN from the social security office.


At the minimum, try to get him a state ID if he doesn't need a Drivers license for some reason.
