Your Green Card will be mailed to you automatically.  It could take a few weeks to a few months.  If you marked the appropriate box on the DS-260, your Social Security card should also be sent to you automatically.

If it has been two weeks (10 business days) since you immigrated, and you do not have your SSA card yet, then you might want to visit your local SSA office.  If you checked the box on the DS-260, your processing at your port-of-entry should have triggered a message to the SSA system.  However, this only works about 50% of the time.  You'll need to wait the two weeks before going to your local office though.  They'll be able to look at their system and see whether or not the request was made.  And, if not, they will help you apply on the spot.

 

Good luck!

My green card arrived about 2 weeks after I got here. My social security card didn't come even though we checked the box so I had to go to the social security office to apply. So I would go if it doesn't come in 2 weeks
