Selective Service 26 y/o Question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

"If you are 26 years of age or older, provide proof that you registered with the Selective Service when you were required to do so between 18 and 26 years of age."

 

My husband was 26 years old when he first entered the U.S. on the K1 visa.  I'm just confused about "between the ages of 18 and 26" - does that mean from the moment you turned 18 to the moment you turned 26?  So, does this indicate that he was never actually required to sign up for the Selective Service since he entered after his 26th birthday?

When I went to the SS website, this is what they state: "Almost all male U.S. citizens and male immigrants, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service"

 

So I guess he never had to apply? Can someone confirm this? 

 

Edit - I think I figured it out. It seems that it only applies before reaching the age of 26, so I think we're good.

at 18 you must register so at 26 also

it is misleading and not between  like 19 to 25  but 18 years to 26 yrs

go to post office and do it /if an offical govenrment notice comes that you do not need to register ,   keep it

save yourself an issue later when he wants to naturalize as this was an issue for a member here

Hmmm I think I'll call on Monday and update with their response.  It specifically says from age 18 to 25 on their website.  This is where I'm getting this info: https://www.sss.gov/Portals/0/PDFs/WhoMustRegisterChart.pdf

Another update from form I485 AOS.  So you are not required to register with the SS if you are 26 years old!


"The following applies to you if you are a male at least 18 years of age, but not yet 26 years of age, who is required to register with the Selective Service System: "I understand that my filing Form I-485 with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) authorizes USCIS to provide certain registration information to the Selective Service System in accordance with the Military Selective Service Act. Upon USCIS acceptance of my application, I authorize USCIS to transmit to the Selective Service System my name, current address, Social Security Number, date of birth, and the date I filed the application for the purpose of recording my Selective Service registration as of the filing date. If, however, USCIS does not accept my application, I further understand that, if so required, I am responsible for registering with the Selective Service by other means, provided I have not yet reached 26 years of age."
