I'm looking at the Step by Step guide for SSN on Visa Journey, and I had a few questions...

  • I noticed it said you should wait about two weeks after arrive to file for an SSN.  Is this true?
  • How long does a I-94 typically last before expiring?
  • The guide said another form of valid ID (than passport I'm guessing) is needed, as defined in the SS-5 instructions ( https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ss-5.pdf ).  I only see US driver's license, US state-issued non-driver identity card, or US passport listed in the Evidence of Identity section.  Obviously my fiancé coming from Japan won't have any of these items, so other than his passport, what would be an acceptable form of ID for the SSN process?
  • Is the RM 10211.530 a form?  When I open the hyperlink, it just takes me to this page:  https://secure.ssa.gov/apps10/poms.nsf/lnx/0110211530  I don't understand what we need to print out and bring to the SSA office.

 

Thank you!

Hi there, I applied today, which was ASAP for me (two business days after POE) and I got hit with manual verification. 😞 According to the letter I was given, it can take up to 4 weeks, but should I be more proactive about it? Go back in a week or two? Or just wait the 4 weeks and go back if I don’t hear anything at that point?

There was a really great post a few weeks ago about solving the black hole of SSN... I’ll dig it up and post it
