Hi all,


Unfortunately, I lost probably the two most important documents an immigrant could have (I know, how stupid of me!), and since then I've been trying to fix my situation.

I applied for an I-551 card replacement back in June, I had my biometrics appointment still in June, and haven't gotten back from USCIS since.

Just recently I had an infopass appointment so I could get an I-551 stamp on my passport, in case I need to travel home or work. So far, so good. The officer told me I could get my SSC replaced with that stamp as well. So, today I went to the SS building downtown in hopes to order a new card, and to my surprise, the stamp wasn't enough as it didn't contain the actual card number. I've looked through all of my paperwork and it is nowhere to be found.


As I am still waiting on my I-551 to come in the mail, I was wondering if there is a way for me to get a hold of the card number, possibly through another infopass appointment. Also, I was hoping to go check on my application anyway since it has been processing for a little over six months already (I don't know the current window processing times, maybe it has been taking that long for all applicants)


What concerns me is the fact that I'm about to get my ROC letter soon as it's been almost two years since I had my green card approved.

Does anyone know if I can send a copy of my I-551 stamp in place of the actual card, in case I don't have it by then? Has this (or anything relatable) happened to anyone on here?


Any information or insight on this will be greatly appreciated

Thank you
