Work authorization and SSN.

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I wanted to finance a car and they refused because my SSN has a work authorization. I have been in america for three years and applied for my 10 years green card around may this year. Am I able to modify my SSN as a permanent resident with an expired green card and the receipt I got when I filed the I 751? I think I should have done that when I received the 2 years green card. Is it too late? Thanks!

You could have changed that restriction the day you got your first greencard just FYI. To change it with an expired greencard might be challenging depending on the SS office you go to. Some people accept extensions some don’t. It’s just a matter of how lucky you are. You can try to go and get it done but if they refuse it you’ll just have to wait until you receive the new greencard.

I understand but my status is not the same anymore since I got a green card. The first SSN I had was before I got my green card and yes it should have been done at the same time. I just didn't know about it honestly. I want to make it right now...

Exactly, go and try to lift your restrictions with the extension letter,  you have nothing to lose. Expired green card might be an issue but don't go into details at the window 😉 Just give what they asks for.

Your previous status doesn’t matter. The minute you’re given a greencard your work status is changed. Like I said try to do it with what you have. If they don’t accept it, which there is a chance they won’t, just wait until you have the new one in hand.
