SSN K1 after marriage

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So this is what went down. After researching here first, I waited over 2 weeks after entry and a week after my wedding to get an SSN. Brought my passport, i94, k1 visa and marriage certificate. Lady at SSA found my maiden name in the data base but for some reason couldn't issue an SSN using my married name. She started talking about having to send info to DHS so I said to just issue an SSN in my maiden name because I figured for people choosing to use their maiden last name, it could be done right? I said I'd just change name later. But she didn't want to do it. She went to ask someone and then came back and then gave me the receipt that said, "...we must verify the document(s) you gave us to show your Alien status with the federal, .... this may take up to 4 weeks..". So I guess I've been manually verified? But they found my maiden name in their database. I'm so confused. And also angry at myself for not asking for a supervisor. Anyone have any thoughts?

I think that's pretty standard. The letter is kind of a template that they give out when people applied for SSN. I believe all you can do now is wait for the card in the mail. If they found your maiden name in the system, then it shouldn't take too long. You can also check the status of your application here: https://save.uscis.gov/CaseCheck/CaseCheck.aspx

You can use it for SSN or any other govt agency cases that you want to check on. For SSN, it should show that an agency asked to verify your info and it would show if the query  has been returned to that agency.
