Social security issue: "miss match"

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We're a K1 application trying to get a social security number before the wedding. In trying to get the beneficiaries social security number, it's been delayed. We contacted them and they let us know there's a "immigration status miss match" and we should contact DHS. Has anyone ever heard of that? What could it be?

Very common.

Use the VJ search bar inputting "manual verification".

You do realize that an immigrant does not need an SSN to get a marriage license, right?

You can always receive it after the wedding or reapply in the maiden name after marriage up until day 76 of your I94 expiry.

I am a K-1 and applied for my SSN before marriage.  It came back a mismatch as well.  They sent the application for manual verification and I had my SS card in my mailbox exactly 3 weeks later.  Same thing happened when I went back to change my name to my married name.  Still waiting for that new card to arrive.   I recommend you go into the office and hand in your application with the required supporting evidence. you do not need to contact DHS yourself.

I tend to agree with you after our mess with DHS, CBP, SAVE, etc.  We had better luck with filling out the SS-5 online at home, print it out, taking it and and our supporting evidence to SSA office for processing.

Yes, we're just running into stop-blocks without a SSN (insurance, getting a credit card, adding him to my checking account, etc). His name will not change, so we were trying to be proactive.

We did go and hand it in person but he wasn't on the system yet (we had waited over two weeks) and they set it aside. When we checked back in today (he's been in the country over a month), they notified us that it was a "miss match". Should we request the social security office do a manual verification? They've been easy to work with so far, just inexperienced with this style visa.

If they told you it was a mix match they are likely pursuing a manual verification already.

Did they give you a receipt and tell you to check back in 4 weeks?

We ran into the same issues and 4 months later still no SSN.  We just ticked the Yes box "Give us a SSN" on our EAD application so USCIS can deal with it.  We didn't need SSN to add to medical insurance through the employer nor was it needed to open a non interest-bearing account at the bank.  The only stop we've run into is with motor vehicles, so we just send our money to Uber while we wait.

For those that run into this issue in the future and want to know the resolution. We did get issued a social security number and card which arrived yesterday. We didn't need to contact DHS (even though we were told to by SS). The issue resolved itself. In total from application to arrival of the card it was 4 weeks. 

 

Thanks all for the help and advice!
