Lost Social Security Card (NOA for removing conditions)

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife lost her social security card. She needs it for a new job. She went to the social security office and they said they need an unexpired I-551 (green card), employment authorization card, or I-94 (which is expired since she's been here for over 2 years). The I-551 expired 12/2017. We applied to have the conditions removed and received an I-797 Notice of action that states "...During the one-year extension, you are authorized employment and travel." The social security office agent she spoke with said that it is not an acceptable document. Are there any ways to get an updated social security card or updated LPR/EAD card for the year?

No. 

 

An expired green card when accompanied by an original extension letter from USCIS will serve as adequate proof of LPR status for the SSA. 

 

Ask for a supervisor if they continue to be silly.

That social security officer goes on the same stack as the lady who told me "you need to apply for a SS card in your home state because we can't mail it across state lines" a couple of months ago.

 

Get another officer.  Then get her in trouble by calling the main number and going back up there to make the complaint official. That's what I did.  It was really funny.

 

Good luck!

Here's an update: 

My wife went to the USCIS office and luckily they saw her right away and gave her the I-551 stamp. They took her expired card. She showed the stamp to the Social Security office (different one) and both the USCIS person she spoke to and Social Security Office agent both said the I-797 Notice of Action should have been enough.
