How long have you been in the USA? I know it can be quite anxiety provoking waiting for your SSN and GC. I think each area are more quicker than others at processing documents. I know when I arrived in the USA I and my son received our SSN almost the same week we arrive in the USA. 

 

All the best

You should just visit the office, don't waste your time calling them, the operator will just give you a "standard" answer.

Did you enter via CR-1 or K-1 visa?

My wife entered under CR-1, and you are supposed to get your SSN within 3 weeks upon entry, if you checked the option in DS-260.

But three weeks passed by, we didn't see anything thing in the mail.

So we decided to go to the Social Security office, the lady there was helpful to process our application.

Do you mind sharing how many days it took for you to receive the residence card, after entry?

So, arrived 4 weeks ago and i downloaded the uscis app.. nothing seemed to change.. after 2 weeks i moved and changed my adress on the uscis page and not even a week later i had it.. if i had not changed my adress , i would probably still be waiting.. even tho the guy on the airport told me they had my adress and they should since it was in the paperwork.
