Received SSN before crossing on IR-1. Why?

I have never heard of this before.  I just received a SSN in the mail, but I don't remember applying.  I am still in Canada, and expect to be crossing in a few weeks.  What actually triggers the SSN application?  I thought it was something that was triggered when I got the IR-1 endorsed.

But I am not even a LPR yet!  I'm concerned that at one of the border crossings recently, they accidentally entered something wrong on my file which triggered SSN issuance.

Did you enter using your immigrant visa on your last entry to the US or was the visa already issued when you entered last time?

I entered on a B-2 for visiting family.  The IR-1 has not yet been endorsed.

So you are saying the passport did have the IR-1 visa in it at the time you used the  B-2 Visa?

There you go. And you are sure they admitted you under B2 and not as an LPR? Is you passport stamped with B2 along with Admit until date?

They took 45 minutes to figure out how to enter me as B-2 instead of LPR, but in the end they confirmed that I was entering on a B-2, although as a Canadian, they didn't put anything in the passport.

Well I hope you were past your 2 year wedding anniversary on your previous trip.  Your passport visa may not have been stamped as valid for 1 year as LPR,  but it seems some parts of the government thinks you are.

Yes

 

Once the IR-1 visa is issued and you make the entry , you are an LPR and no longer a visitor. Clearly an error at CBP. To resolve it you should call and go in person to your local CBP and they will be able to correct it and stamp your passport w I-551 so you can come and go as need. 

 

Even though not your error , it remains your problem to address…and you do not want to be close to any potential claims attributed to of “ having claimed to be a non-resident “ during LPR status.

So have you paid the Immigration Fee of $220 to get your green card produced.

 

But you do need to do like @Family said above call CBP or make infopass appt and get your 551 stamp. This could create issues because your B2 visa should have been voided on entry and you have no 551 endorsement. Get this handled immediately.

I have not paid the Immigration Fee, and it is absolutely necessary that I am not deemed a US resident for at least two weeks yet, for reasons too complicated to explain.  Therefore I chose to enter on B-2 instead of IR-1.

Do I need to contact the CBP to correct something now, even though I don't want the I-551 stamp for two more weeks?

lol,  well that's the chance you took entering when you had a valid resident visa.   You can of course wait two more weeks,  as Family said,  you might run into problems entering the next time.  Please let us know how it goes.

Paying the $220 ( before or after your entry) has no bearing on date of entry as LPR after getting IR-1 visa , though I think you delayed it thinking it will help. 
 

As it was pointed out there is clear evidence your 1st entry triggered some events ( such as your SS) and

it is absolutely a good practice for any  CR with a chance to delay entry till marriage is 2 yrs and skip the dreaded I-751 …

But I cannot imagine the sensitive reasons you are delaying and thus can not weigh w any valuable input .

 

Since the deed is done, all you have to decide is will waiting bite me in the xxx
