DS-260: Checked the box to have DHS send the information to SSA to produce a card after POE entry.
12/05/2023 Entered MIA
12/18/2023 Stopped by Myrtle Beach SSA to verify information. Was non-existent.
12/21/2023 Called SSA Main Number, Hold for 1 hour and spoke with someone incompetent of the immigration services,
was put on hold 4 times, extra 35 min and still got nothing to work with
12/28/2023 Decided to go to local SSA Office without an appointment. Brought the SSA 5 application, Passport with Visa and Visa Stamp, foreign birth certificate and its translation.
Asked the women if she could double check the computers again to see if the information was transferred. No luck.
The women took the SS5 and applied for the SSA card manually. Took about 5 min and was told to wait two weeks for the verification and delivery of the card.
I would say give it a week and go to the SSA office with SS5 filled out, Passport with Visa stamp and their birth certificate (translated just incase). Check to see if your information is entered into the computer automatically from the DS-260. If it is not, request that they order a SSA number instead of waiting longer.
