Social Security Number Application

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I came here on a cr1 visa three weeks ago but haven’t received my ssn yet. 

We paid the green card fees on 29th of May. 

So I have to go to the local social security office. So What do I have to bring to social security office? Passport and birth certificate? 

Can anyone please share the forms I need to fill? 

Can someone please tell me why it hasn’t come yet as it’s been more than three weeks already

File form SS-5

All I took was my passport and birth certificate. 

Why hasn't it come yet? Who knows, it'll be in the government processing blackhole. 

 

Top tip, If they cant find you and you have a middle name (a name that is not part of your forname) ask them to search for you on the database with all your middle names included with your first name

 

Also dont be surprised if they turn their nose up at your  visa in your passport and demand you need the plastic green card. Just be firm with them and tell them this is your visa.

Yup, click fill out and print

But it is asking about my parents ssn? They aren’t in the us. It doesn’t ask about my husband’s ssn?

No your visa is your work authorization

You will be required to complete your parents names on there. Obviously you cant enter their ssn

So once I fill the form I have to wait in a long queue? Do I need photo copies of my passport and birth certificate as well?

How was the queue and did you need photocopies?

It's been more than a month since I entered (with CR1 visa as well) and still no ssn card either.

Will be going to the local ssa office tomorrow .

The queue wasn’t that long as I went before there starting time. No, you don’t need copies. Just make sure to bring your marriage certificate, birth certificate and passport. I brought my marriage certificate by chance and that’s the only thing she asked for although it wasn’t a requirement.

Just for anyone's future reference.

After a 2.5hr wait, I managed to get my SSN application in.

The lady at the counter told me that there was no application sent in automatically (even after I had checked that box in the DS-260 and it had been more than 4 weeks since my entry into the US). 

In hindsight I probably should have made the trip 2 weeks ago. Clearly the "automated process" didn't happen.

For some people it happens automatically. But if it doesn’t happen in 2 weeks, you gotta go there. Tbh it’s up to the immigration officer. If you are lucky enough they will send your details. If you’re not, you gotta go there. I downloaded the application and took it with me. It took me just half an hour to get over with the application.
