Wait time for Social Security Card?

5 posts in this topic

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Philippines

My wife is here on a K1 visa. She applied for a social security card in person on October 25 at an office in Phoenix. In a letter that was handed to us as we left that office, it said she should receive her card in about 2 weeks. Today is December 10 and still no card.

Should we be worried something got lost? Has anyone else waited this long or longer? Is the Phoenix office notorious for being slow?

Also, I really can't find a true number to call where you can get a real person to talk with. Anyone know who to call? or is it just a waste of time?

If anyone can shed any light on any of this, we would appreciate it very much. Thank you!
