Hi everyone, 

 

This forum was notoriously helpful for me a few years ago when I was going through my visa application process. I’m very lucky to now say that I am a permanent resident and I have been living in San Francisco for the last 2 years and I love it here! 
My question is about selective service and the process to naturalization. During my visa interview I also applied for a social security number at the same time as processing my visa application. When I go to check if I am enrolled with the selective service using my SSN it says that no record is found, and it says that I am unable to register online. I turn 26 in 3 months and I want to be sure that I am enrolled so that there are no hiccups for naturalization. 

I know that USCIS passes my information along to SSS but they may not have passed on my SSN as I applied for it simultaneously in my visa interview, so I am assuming that this is the reason that I cannot look up my confirmation on the selective service online portal. I know there are many success stories with USCIS doing everything correctly, but I’ve also heard some nightmares about the process and people are ultimately unable to go through the naturalization process due to it.

Just to be safe, I printed out an application for SSS and posted it last month however I still have not heard back yet. I know with COVID-19 there is a delay in processing, but I’m getting a little anxious. I am going to call in the next few days to see what the process looks like, but I’m just wondering if anyone has been in the same boat as me.

 

Thanks everyone and I hope you’re all safe out there with the craziness of this pandemic!

You shouldn’t worry as you have already done your part of applying. If asked, you can inform. Keep checking online to see if you can confirm online. You should also be getting registration card in the mail.
