Green Card approved but no I-765 update?


3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Seeking tips on receiving SSN. We filed the 485 and 765 at the same time, Feb 2021. Biometrics taken April. Green Card interview beginning of July. Green card arrived a couple weeks later. All good on the 485 side.


However, no updates re: 765 since April. USCIS website states "Case Was Updated To Show Fingerprints Were Taken" April 24. Unable to submit a case inquiry since last update was "too recent". 


Called USCIS, they'll send instructions to SSA to create SSN when 765 is done processing. Called SSA, they haven't heard anything from USCIS re: my wife. Really need to get my wife's SSN to take care of tax and insurance issues.


Has anyone been in this situation before? Were you able to do anything besides wait? Any tips? Coming up on a year since 765 was filed. Thank you!

You don’t need the i765 anymore since you have the green card!

Too long to write. Came on an F1 student visa in 2019, married, adjusted my status, then became a citizen in Sept 2023

Why are you even waiting for I-765? It’s voided the minute you have a GC issued. And it probably won’t even be adjudicated because the IO will see in the system that you already have a green card. Make an appointment with SSA office and take your GC.
