Hi,

 

I'm an F1 student that just got married 2 weeks ago. I will file for AOS in March. I was on OPT a year ago and was given a social security card. However, I'm wondering, when I apply for work authorization during the AOS process, will I get a new social security number/card?

 

I hope I will because I believe that the current one I have is being used without my permission.

 

Please advise.

 

Best,

Best,

Your SSN is yours for life. You will not be issued with another number after marriage. If you believe your number is being fraudulently used, you should report it to the SSA

You will not get a new SSN because that one is yours. How do you think that one is brushed without your permission?

Well, my fault really... I was looking for health insurance and got a call on the phone from an insurance salesman and he asked for my ssn, which I stupidly gave away. Is it being used without my permission? I don't know. But the idea that someone else knows it bugs me.

If you think it may be being used , then at least check your credit ratings and your social security account transactions. It’s not going to fix itself !

Sooner or later people will know your social security number. When you apply for a credit card for example or do your taxes. Through my job I deal with 50+ social security numbers a day. I never once thought about stealing them and using them for my benefit or to hurt my customers. But be more mindful next time you give out your SSN.
