SAVE database and SSN

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello!

My fiancé arrived in the US yesterday for good (finally)!! And we're considering going to apply for his SSN today.  But we're a little confused about the necessity to wait 2 weeks still.  Can anyone speak on this?  We'd like to do things as streamlined as possible.

 

I've imputed his data into the SAVE site (https://save.uscis.gov/CaseCheck/SearchCases.aspx) but nothing pops up under his passport or I94 number.  I'm not even sure it's supposed to at this point though.

If you don't wait there is a good chance he will not be in the system and it will take even longer to process. Your best bet is to wait. I have even read recently that people are having to wait longer than 2 weeks. My fiance moved Dec 11th and we have not gone yet. We will probably wait for the holidays to be over just in case.

In our experience, the SSA office has to submit a case into the SAVE system to verify your fiance's immigration status. This verification can take up to 2 weeks as in the case for my wife when she applied for her SSN and when she took her driver license. Once the SSA or any other agency checking the immigration status, you will see that appear on the SAVE system. In fact, SSA will issue you the case number from SAVE system so you can also see and track the progress. Good Luck

So I won’t see anything on the SAVE website until I actually go to the SSA and file the paperwork?  Thank you.  I was confused if he was supposed to show up before I go, or if in fact it is how you described.

 

thanks so much!

"...The SAVE Program provides a fast, secure and efficient verification service for federal, state and local benefit-granting agencies to verify a benefit applicant’s immigration status or naturalized/derived citizenship..."

No you won't see anything on the SAVE system until the applicant actually goes to the SSA and file the paperwork. I would recommend doing this at the earliest because if you do this closer to his I-94 expiring, they will deny him and will have to wait until he gets his EAD card. Here's a thread that you can read that had this similar situation that I'm referring to.

I went the next day after my now wife's arrival. It was Nov 28th. Still waiting for the card. 
SAVE says "SAVE has returned your case to Maryland - Social Security Administration, SSA (Single Signon)."

 

No idea how much longer i'll have to wait, but last time i went to SSOffice, they said i should get it before the end of December, so maybe this week.. 
Date: Dec 18th, 2018

Not sure if that helps you. But maybe some others can add and explain more in detail what that means, and when should i expect for card..

Thanks for the info.  Has the office been able to give you the number when you went back, and now you’re just waiting on the actual card?

Last time i went there, they said that the status is still being confirmed.. That was dec 18th actually, same day that the update says.. I went back trying to update the name without waiting for card (never hurts to try), but i have to wait for it regardless. 

I did ask for number, but they said at that moment they are unable to do so because the number still wasn't assigned yet.

Hey! I am in the same situation. Case went back to Maryland? Not sure what that means. Have you received it yet?

Yeah i got it right before new year. 

You should receive a letter saying that they “have received your application for social security card and it’s send for verification for DHS” or something like that. Two days later we received the actual card.
