Previously issued SSN from J-1

Hi,

 

Just a quick question I havent had much luck in finding an answer to. My Fiance first came into the country in 2014 to work on a J-1 and was given a Social Security Card at that time. 

 

He has kept the card through all these years, and we put that number on all our K-1 forms. Now he is finally here, and we are getting ready to have our ceremony and file for AOS, my question is 

 

Is there something we need to do to with his SSN so they know he is now a legal resident? He does not get a new number, correct? 

 

Any insight would be great, I have tried finding the answer on the SS site but it seems all the immigrant SSN information is to obtain a new card.

 

Thank you!

Once he has his green card he can go to thr SSA and get the "valid only with work authorization" taken off

He does not need to get a new number. He just needs to go to the AS A office to update them on his status once he has his EAD or greencard.
