Employment authorisation and SSC

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I arrived on a K1 visa last month and went to the SS office last week. All went smoothly and I am waiting for my card to arrive. I know this card will not be valid for work as I have not yet filed the employment authorisation form which I am currently filling out. Along with my AOS.

I am waiting to get my card with the number before I send the form so I can add the SSN on there. 

My question is, although I don't need to check yes for them to issue me with a card, the card I have arriving will obviously be exempt from working. How does this get sorted? Do I need to check yes to get an updated card? 

Thanks! :)

When you filled out the SSN application you ticked the box saying "legal alien allowed to work", so yes, your SSC will state that you are allowed to work - but only together with DHS authorization (the EAD).


K-1: 12-22-2015 - 09-07-2016 (260 days)

AP: 12-20-2016 - 04-07-2017 (108 days)

EAD: 01-18-2017 - 05-30-2017 (132 days)

AOS: 12-20-2016 - 07-26-2017 (217 days)

 

ROC: 04-19-2019 earliest filing date

For the I-765 form Part 2 #14 select "No." If you want to remove "VALID FOR WORK ONLY WITH DHS AUTHORIZATION" from the SS card you have to wait until you are a permanent resident. At that time you need to go in-person to the SSA office to remove it.

I didn't even think about needing them both. Thank you so much!

It makes sense now you say that. Thank you for your help!
