Should we wait for Social Security Card?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My partner is here on the K-1 visa, and we married a little over a month ago. We applied for a Social Security card 16 days ago, but have not yet received it. I'm almost done with all the paperwork for the adjustment of status, and the i-485 and i-765 are asking for the social security number if available. I'm wondering if we should wait until the SS card arrives in the mail before sending this off or should I send it in now and leave it blank (and maybe add a note that we are still waiting for the number)? Can I send the number in to them when we get it in a few weeks? Like can I update them somehow?

 

Thanks!

Did SS tell you they were issuing a card? We applied in person for a SS# after we got married and before we filed the status adjustment and was told they wouldn't issue a card without a status adjustment.

Filed, got the reciept back that our file was accepted by USCIS. Went back to SS and they still didn't issue.

That is why apply for a SS Card before marriage.

You can go ahead and put on the last page (where there's room for extra info) that you applied for SSN but didn't get it yet. It's not a huge deal. You don't have to send it afterwards, you could always tell the officer your SSN at your GC interview if they ask for it

Yes! We applied after marriage because in Oregon you don't need a SS # to get a marriage license, and we figured it would be easier to apply after b/c it would have the new name on the marriage license. They said everything was okay and to expect the SS card in 2-4 weeks.

I will send off the packet this week and make a note that we are still waiting for the SS card and include a copy of the receipt the SS office gave us. Thank you all for the replies!
