Yes, you can get the SSN in the maiden name before marriage. I highly suggest getting it asap.

Sometimes its easy, sometimes its next door to impossible. I recommend going to the biggest city that is feasible for you to apply as you are more likely to get someone experienced. Applying is pretty straightforward, take your passport and a printout of your I-94.

Yup, requested my replacement card (had an SSN from years ago) before our wedding. Had to go through manual verification twice (once for the replacement card in my maiden name and 1 week later when I applied in my married name. Officer even recognized me lol), but got both cards without trouble (except MV) before my I-94 expired.

 

It's best to get it asap. A lot of banks and insurances request an SSN (not all, but a lot). You need an SSN to get a DL (PA allows you to get your DL while AOS is pending) My husband had to provide my SSN to put me on his health- and car insurance.

Leave it for about 2 weeks after your fiance arrives in the States or his record of arrival won't be in the system. I took the print out of "RM 10211.530 List of Documents Establishing Lawful Alien Status for an SSN Card" showing my eligibility in case it was disputed. We chose to go to a larger office in Metro Detroit where they were more likely to have experience. In all it took 10 minutes and I was given a SSN there, the card arrived in the mail a week later. If you have no luck, ask to speak to a supervisor or choose another office.
