Applied for SSN after AOS

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We sent out the I-485 packet along with the I-765 (employment authorization) and I-131 (travel permit) sometime last week. 

Today, my husband applied for his social security #, which was issued to him and will be mailed out. 

He told me they told him that because he will now have a SSN, then he will receive a letter stating his work permit application (assuming that’s the I-765)  will be denied...??... He said he didn’t really understand what they meant by that and he didn’t ask 😒 

Does this sound accurate or familiar to anyone? 

If so, does that mean he has to resend the I-765 only because he now has to include his SSN? And pay a whole other fee for it . 

Has anyone applied for their SSN AFTER sending the AOS packet?

What the heck? The social security people have absolutely ZERO connection with how USCIS adjudicates AoS and AoS-related applications. That person had no idea what they were talking about. Your husband will receive his EAD.

Any immigration "advice" given by SSA employees should be disregarded. Period.

Many K-1 AOS individuals have. Not an issue at all.

Very late reminder (lol) that there is no fee for I-765 nor I-131 for AOS applicants.

Thanks!! Yeah we didn’t pay any extra fees bc we filed it along with the 485 but I thought there would be a fee if you filed them separately, which I figured we would have to do it we were “denied”. But thanks for your quick response! Such a relief!

No fees ever required for EAD and/or AP based on pending AOS (except if a fee waiver was used for the I-485). So if he needs to renew them in the future its also free (just remember to include a photocopy of the I-485 receipt notice).

And note that a fee waiver for family-based immigration is not available (specifically, it's not available when an I-864 is required).

Good day everyone. My visa was Issued today, thank god. My question is do I have to wait until I reach the USA to apply for SSN ? 

Congrats.

Yes. You are not a permanent resident - and do not qualify for an SSN - until you enter on the immigrant visa.
