17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

(CR-1) My husband has been in the states since 7/5/19 (still waiting for his permanent resident  card) he’s been to the US before on an H2B visa already has a SSN & card. Does he still have to wait for his permanent resident card to work and get his drivers license or can he use his SSN & card that he already has?

His endorsed visa (CR-1) acts as a Green Card until the plastic one arrives......it allows work and provides evidence of legal resident status....

He needs to get the SSN updated at SSA. Go to the office with passport. He won't get a new number but his status has changed so it needs too be updated.

An endorsed immigrant visa is proof of legal status

That's exactly what I said "he won't get a new number" but his status is now different not H2b Visa anymore so that needs to be updated.

Status is updated without a visit to the SS office.  

What if my immigration status or citizenship changed?

If your immigration status changed or you became a U.S. citizen, you should tell Social Security so we can update your records. To get your immigration status or citizenship corrected, you need to show documents that prove your new status or citizenship. We can accept only certain documents as proof of citizenship for new and replacement cards.

 

Just giving info based on what it says on their website and official docs.

He’s not getting anything until his EAD card arrives if his status is K1 (op’s profile/timeline)

If his status is CR1 (op’s post) and he asked for SS in his application then he will automatically get a new card.

Nita got a “not authorized without DHS” card in 2008 with EAD and automatically got a new unrestricted card in 2012 after returning on an IR1.  It was unexpected however E-Verify (no matter what’s written on the card) is DHS and that is where employers call and that is always updated when status changes.

Clear?

Not true,  He has his SSN and work permit from H2B status, so he is updating his change of status with SSA.  That is different than K-1 versus CR-1/IR-1.
