Green Card approved before EAD and AP (cases closed) but what happens to the SSN requested through the EAD form?

So we got our AOS interview (03/18/19) way before the prediction date for when my wife would get her EAD/AP and last week she got an email informing her that our case was approved and the card was in production (card has been mailed yesterday!) which is great! However, we have some doubts regarding the SSN. She requested her SSN through the EAD form but now that the case has been closed we don't know if the AOS case will take over the request for an SSN or if we'll need to go to an office and request it again. We wanted to include her SSN on our joint tax return form and with the deadline approaching we're getting a bit worried. Has anyone gone through something similar?

You'll need to go to the SSN office once she gets her green card, since the EAD gets voided and so does the request for her SSN.

You can file taxes with an ITIN for her

Thanks! She's going to call a Social Security Office tomorrow and if everything works out we'll try to get it done tomorrow. We did check on the ITIN before but we were informed that requesting one might delay her request for a SSN. We're going to talk to someone from the office tomorrow and see what our quickest/best option would be.
