Do I really need to wait 2 weeks to apply for ssn for fiance?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance has arrived into the USA this Saturday October 26! I read online that it's better to wait 2 weeks for her to be in the system before applying for a ssn as otherwise USCIS needs to do a manual verification. Is this actually true? Is it detrimental to apply for a ssn this Friday?

Some people just wait a couple of weeks afer arrival just to have the I-94 system get updated, but there's no harm in applying now.  It will better to apply sooner.
