SSN can take 3 weeks.  Greencard can take up to 3 months.  You can show your passport stamp to DMV when applying for a drivers license, then show the drivers license and SSN card to an employer.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to visit the SSN office and inquire, or apply if not in the system. Happens.

Within 2 weeks from the date of arrival, you will get the SSN card. If not, you should go to the SSA local office to apply.


Green card takes up to 3 months, you should check the card status online using IOE number from receipt. Bring your passport and visa to go to the post office to register your name, otherwise the post officer may return your mail to sender if your name is not in mailbox.


Should register informed delivery service of USPS. It will tells you when your card is delievered so you can check it before anyone else take it from your mailbox.
