IR2 - Does the SSN card appear automatically after entry?

4 posts in this topic

Filed: IR-2 Country: Nicaragua
Timeline

My son entered the US two days ago. He is IR2. I'm very excited.

 

On the DS-260 I indicated that we never applied for a SSN and that we want the SSA to issue a SSN and a card. I want to know if this happens automatically.

 

Our SSA office in my city is currently closed due to covid. And the SSA website also says the easiest way to do it is to indicate on the DS-260 if you want one issued. But I read time and time again that people have to go to the office to get one. And then get the run around.

 

Has anyone ever received a SSN card completely automatically without doing anything? What would be the best course of action for us? Just wait and pray that it arrives?

Give it 3-4 weeks and then call your local office if it’s not arrived. It’s pretty hit and miss. SSA offices are supposed to be prioritising those who need a number issued

If you marked the ds 260 for USCIS to apply for your SS # ,  don't make an application yourself / 2 applications for the same person slows the process for obivious reasons/  like is it really 2 different people 

the card will come  / SS is still short staffed and some work from home so the card is taking longer that it did before covid but USCIS will do the work for u

We checked the box for a SSN, and reminded the officer at the POE (JFK) that we had checked the box.  We did not receive a SSN card, so we made an appointment at our local office (pre-COVID).  After our appointment, the SSN came in 5 days.  Based on what I've read on Visa Journey over the years, the SSN is generated only about 40% of the time.

 

Do not wait more than 4 weeks.
