Questions about Social Security Card Request Denial

Timeline

My husband and I went into the Social Security office shortly after we married to apply for a SSN. We provided his K1 visa, our marriage certificate, the i-94 document, and of course the application itself as evidence he was eligible for a number. Yesterday we received a denial letter that his visa was expiring soon, so he was ineligible for a SSN. Our friends went through the exact same process, and they had no issue. Anyone else run into this issue? We are totally confused, because when we did the application, his visa wasn’t set to expire for another 1.5 months, plus we were in the process of applying for the adjustment of status as well. Even with all that, us being married, according to our own research and talking to our friends, should have made him eligible for a SSN. Any tips? We can repeal the decision, which is our plan on Monday, but we are slightly confused on what else we can provide as evidence.

 

This is really an issue because I can even file my taxes without his SSN, let alone move forward with adding his name to the bills and getting a bank account. Help please, especially if you had issues as well.

 

Thanks in advance! 🙂

They would be looking at your I-94 expiration date. If you are within 2 weeks of your I-94 expiration date they will not process your SSN application. You need proof that you are currently eligible to work in the US, which you were when you came on the K1 visa and had an active I-94. But you are not eligible to work if you are just pending AOS, so you no longer qualify for one. You either have to apply for EAD or wait for AOS. If you need a number for taxes you can try applying for an ITIN.
