    I'm Gone got a reaction from Cristina280390 in SSN - I still have my old au pair social security card   
    The Social Security Administration (SSA) does not delete, destroy, rescind, inactivate or cancel Social Security numbers once they are assigned. Your SSN and card are still valid.
    Your SSN card having the legend, “VALID FOR WORK ONLY WITH INS AUTHORIZATION,” only means you cannot use your SSN card as proof of authorization to work in the United States. It does not otherwise affect the validity of the card or number.
    To change the name on your SSN record due to marriage
    Only the marriage document is needed if it meets the following criteria:
    -- The new name can be derived from the marriage document, i.e. bride
    takes the groom’s last name, groom takes bride’s last name, compound
    name (with or without hyphen) of each spouse’s original name for
    either or both parties.
    Note: The type of name change requested must also be allowable under state law.
    -- The marriage occurred within the past two years
    -- The marriage document shows sufficient identifying information
    (e.g., biographical data such as age, date of birth or parent's
    names), and
    -- The identifying information matches the information on his/her
    Social Security number (Numident) record.
    The applicant will need to submit an identity document in the old name along with the marriage document if:
    -- The marriage occurred within the last two years and has biographical
    Information, e.g., age, date of birth or parent's names which does
    not match our records, e.g., the SSN record.
    -- The marriage occurred within the last two years, but does not show
    biographical information, or
    -- The marriage occurred over two years ago (with or without
    biographical information.
    The identity document used to establish the old name must match the name on the current SSN record. The identity document is acceptable even if over two years old or expired.
    When issuing immigration documents, the Department of State and Department of Homeland Security issue them in the person’s legal name. The legal name is also generally the name in which the foreign passport was issued.
    When an alien applies for an SSN card, we presume the name on the immigration document is the legal name unless the applicant presents evidence of a legal name change, e.g., marriage that occurred after the immigration document was issued.
    This is in addition to proof of current lawful employment authorized status.

    I haven't been on here in a long long time, but thought I would look at how SSA is doing with issuing K-1s SSNs.  Looks like almost seven years after I retired from SSA not much has changed.

    What SSA office told you this? This is not true. Tell them to read this
    If the required documents show clearly different names, we cannot accept the evidence to process the application. In these situations, the applicant must submit evidence showing the same name, or submit evidence of a name change that occurred after the immigration document was issued.

    To be sure, call the SSA 800# (800-772-1213) and review your SSN record. If your application has been processed as a permenent resident the IDN code on the new record will be the letter "H". If it is an "H", the card coming will be an unrestricted card.

    Yes, the person is wrong. If you applied, hopefully the person coded things right so that you won't get another restricted card. Plus, I hope you didn't give them your SSN card. If you apply and they ask for the old card, say the dog ate it. LOL Do not give up the old card until you receive the new one.

    The Social Security Administration (SSA) has entered into agreements with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of State (DOS) for those agencies to assist SSA by collecting as part of the immigration process the information SSA needs to assign Social Security numbers and issue Social Security number (SSN) cards. DHS electronically forwards the data to SSA once the person is admitted to the United States (U.S.), to assign Social Security numbers and issue SSN cards. SSA calls this data sharing process Enumeration at Entry (EAE).
    RM 00202.315 Enumeration At Entry:
    http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100202315
    Individuals applying for an immigrant visa and completing Form DS-230 “Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration,” should answer “yes” to questions 43a and 43b on the form if he or she wants to be assigned an SSN or issued a replacement card.
    The individual should receive his or her SSN card within 3 weeks after arriving in the United States. The SSN card will be mailed to the same United States mailing address that is used to mail the Permanent Resident card (Form I-551).
    If you answered “yes” to being assigned an SSN on Form DS-230 when applying for an immigrant visa, and have not received your SSN card within 3 weeks of being admitted to the United States, suggest that you go into an SSA office.
    If you have been assigned an SSN, the office can provide you with the number. However, if you have not received your card within 14 days of your SSN being assigned, normally you will need to apply for a replacement SSN card.
    After 3 weeks, you will need to submit an SSN application at one of our offices, if no SSN has been assigned or application is found pending.
    You can obtain the address and directions to Social Security offices from the Social Security Office Locator, which is available on the Internet:
    http://www.ssa.gov/locator
    Applicants who live or receive mail in the Brooklyn, NY, Queens, NY, Phoenix, AZ, Orlando, FL, Sacramento, CA, or Las Vegas, NV area should apply at their local Social Security Card Center.
    Individuals residing in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN area should apply at the Twin Cities Card Center.
    Card Center Information:
    http://www.ssa.gov/cardcenters/cardcenterinfo.html
    Be sure to take proof of age, identity and work authorization when going into a Social Security office to inquiry about the status of your SSN or to submit an application.
    Applicants need to provide at least two documents as evidence to establish age, identity and work authorization.
    Example: If the immigration document, for example, I-551, is used to establish work authorization and identity, the alien must provide another document to establish age.
    Proof of age is not required when applying for a replacement SSN card.
    When requesting an SSN card, the documents presented, as evidence must be either originals or copies certified by the issuing agency. SSA cannot accept uncertified or notarized photocopies as evidence.
    If an acceptable evidence document is in a language other than English and no other acceptable document is available, SSA will have the foreign language document translated by an authorized translator.
    SSA translators comprise two groups:
    -- Field office and Payment Center employees who volunteer their
    services as translators
    -- Central Translation Section translators who hold actual translator
    positions.
    GN 00301.340 Authorized Translators Defined:
    http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0200301340
    If a foreign-born person has the foreign birth certificate in his/her possession or can easily obtain a copy, he or she must submit it as proof of age. In some situations SSA can accept alternative evidence of age. The alternative evidence of age may be less than a year old, for example, a foreign passport.
    You can find detailed information regarding evidence that
    establishes age on the SSA Web site:
    http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100203110
    The documents acceptable as evidence of identity are now based on three factors: (1) the applicant’s age, (2) the applicant’s citizenship/alien status, and (3) the relative value of documents.
    Primary Identity Evidence for an alien:
    -- Form I-551, Permanent Resident Card (includes temporary I-551
    stamp/machine readable immigrant visa (MRIV) in combination with an
    unexpired foreign passport when the I-551 Permanent Resident Card
    has not yet been issued)
    You can find detailed information regarding evidence that
    establishes identity on the SSA Web site:
    http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100203200
    Employment Authorization Documents:
    -- I-551 (stamp or card)
    -- MRIV with temporary I-551 language
    Note: The MRIV shows the alien's identification number (“A” number) as the “Registration Number” in the upper right-hand corner of the MRIV.
    The MRIV in an unexpired foreign passport that shows the statement “UPON ENDORSEMENT SERVES AS TEMPORARY I-551 EVIDENCING PERMANENT RESIDENCE FOR 1 YEAR and is endorsed with an admission stamp is the same as a valid Temporary I-551 stamp and is valid for one year from the date of endorsement by the admission stamp.
    Example:
    If the admission stamp shows a date of entry into the U.S. as January 4, 2010, the expiration of the temporary I-551 status will be January 3, 2011. The expiration date on the MRIV should not be used to determine when the temporary I-551 status expires. The expiration date on the MRIV only shows how long the MRIV is valid not how long the alien's temporary I-551 status is valid.
    RM 00203.410 Evidence of Alien Status for an SSN Card for an Alien Lawfully Admitted for Permanent Residence:
    http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100203410
    An SSN card should be received card in the mail within two weeks after the application and documents have been received and verified when applying within the United States.
    However, when an alien requests an SSN or replacement card, SSA must verify his or her documents/current status with the appropriate bureau of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). If the initial online verification is not possible through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) system, SSA may need to send a Form G-845 to the appropriate DHS Status Verification Office (SVO) for manual verification.
    Social Security field offices can submit an additional electronic online verification, which with the majority of applications eliminates the need to send a Form G-845 along with a copy of the applicant’s immigration documents.
    However, some applications still require a copy of the immigration document(s) to be mailed to the appropriate DHS SVO along with Form G-845 for manual verification.
    SSA offices can also assist applicants by issuing a notice acknowledging the SSN application while documents are being verified.

    When the name shown on the immigration document differs from the name shown on other evidence submitted for an SSN, process the SSN in the name on the immigration document as long as the name can be derived from the other evidence (e.g., foreign passport).

    G. Name on Numident different from name on immigration document
    Alejandro Gomez applies for a replacement SSN card to show his legal name Alejandro Gomez. The last Numident record shows his name as, Alex Gomez. He submits to SSA his Form I-551 (Lawful Permanent Resident Card) showing his legal name Alejandro Gomez. Alejandro explains that he changed his name to Alex to Americanize his first name.
    The current immigration document is evidence of the legal name per RM10212.001 and evidence of identity per RM00203.200. If all biographical information on the immigration document and supplied by Mr Gomez agrees with the Numident (including an NL2 line, if present), legal name and identity are established following RM10212.150 C and the name correction can be processed. NOTE: If the most recent Numident was established after 12/17/05, when SSA's legal name policy became effective, or the immigration document was issued before the most recent Numident was established, request the SSA microprint to determine if a legal name change is indicated. If the microprint does indicate evidence of a name change (e.g. a marriage record or court order) was submitted, delete the current application and issue a denial letter stating sufficient evidence for the name change was not submitted. Evidence of a legal name change following RM10212.015 would be needed if a new application were filed.

    B. Evidence of new name
    Accept a name change document based on marriage, civil union or domestic partnership as evidence of the new name to be shown on the card, if the new name can be derived from the document.
    Any of the following changes to the last name, using the names shown on the evidence, are permitted:
    -- bride takes the groom’s last name;
    -- groom takes bride’s last name;
    -- spouse takes the other parties’ last name;
    -- spouse takes one part of the other parties’ compound surname;
    -- compound name (with or without hyphen) of each spouse’s original surname for either or both parties
    D. Example of acceptable evidence to process a name change based on marriage
    Lisa Foster submits evidence of the name change event, her US ceremonial marriage to Bryan Lee-Walsh. She wants to change her surname to a compound surname, Foster Lee, with only part of Bryan’s surname. Since this new name can be derived from the prior names shown on the marriage document, the marriage document is acceptable evidence of the new name. We may also change Lisa’s surname to one of the following if she requests it:
    -- WALSH,
    -- LEE-WALSH (or reverse, with or without space or hyphen),
    -- LEE FOSTER (with or without space or hyphen, Foster Lee could also have a hyphen or not have a space)
    -- FOSTER WALSH (or reverse, with or without space or hyphen)
    -- FOSTER LEE WALSH (in any order, with or without spaces or hyphens)
    The marriage document can also be used as acceptable evidence of identity, if it shows Lisa’s prior name (Lisa Foster) and either her age, birth date, or parents’ names, that matches the data on the Numident, and if the marriage took place within the prior two years.
    This is the one that woman needs to explain to you. Name on SSN record can be corrected even if you don't have work authorization, so why can't you do it when your I-94 is still valid.

    If the alien does not provide evidence of work authorization or a valid nonwork reason, explain that we cannot issue a replacement card.
    1. Alien provides documentation supporting the change
    Although the FO cannot issue a replacement card, you may correct the Numident if the alien provides documentation supporting the change (e.g., a name change).
    If the alien provides documentation supporting the change, process the replacement card application to update the Numident information but suppress the issuance of a card.

    Without looking at the application and the immigration verification responses it's hard to know what is the problem. The verification process has three steps. An initial that they do while you are in the office. If that's no good they send a secondary electronic verification request. That takes normally no more than a week to send SSA a response. If the response is that immigration needs to see the document, a photo copy of the front and back of the immigration document is mailed to the verification office with Form G-845. It used to be that the SSA office had to wait for the G-845 to be mailed back, but now once immigration processes the G-845, the SSA office gets a third level electronic verification response. If the G-845 made it there and immigration responds, that should take a month at the most. The problem can be that the second and third level responses have to be pulled into the SSN application system by the SSA office and sometimes they don't do it right away. I would ask them at what level of the verification process they are at and have they received a response and does it require them going to the next step.

    I'm Gone got a reaction from TheFantastics09 in is SSN before marriage   
    OK here is the real story. You don't have to apply before you get married, but things tend to go smoother if you do. Now what's going to matter before or after you get married is what name you put on the application.
    For you to be able to apply in your married name as a K-1 your marriage certificate will need to have your age or your date of birth (DOB). Otherwise, you will need to wait until you have an EAD card or I-551 card with your married name.
    If applying in maiden name you need your birth certificate and I-94 along with your passport. SSA doesn't care about your visa. If applying with married name of course you are going to need your marriage certificate, but again it's going to need to show your age or DOB.
    You also need to remember that SSA will not assign an SSN or issue a card if your status has expired or is
    within 14 days of expiring.
    K-1 status is good for 90 days, so that only gives you 76 days to be assigned an SSN and issued a card. After that time you will need an EAD or I-551 card to establish authorization to work. Before that time the I-94 showing K-1 status is the document that establishes authorization to work for SSN purposes.
    The status/documents of all aliens must be verified before SSA will assign an SSN and/or issue a card and the 14 day limit applies even if she passes the 76th day while waiting for her status to be verified.
    The SSA office will try to verify your status through the SAVE system while you are in the office. If they can't, they will send a form G-845 to immigration for manual verification. This could delay the assigning of an SSN and/or issuing a card for weeks and some times months.
    If the SSA office does send the G-845, suggest that you go back to the SSA office no more than once a week with your documents to (1) ask them to check SAVE again (2) ask if they sent a G-845 (3) if yes, did it come back (4) after 30 days ask if they have followed up on the G-845 by calling or sending another mark "second request."

If DHS does not respond within 15 federal work days from the receipt of the G-845 from SSA, follow-up with the DHS, USCIS Immigration Status office. (Allow 15 days plus five additional federal work days of mail time for the G-845 to be received at and returned from DHS.
    Follow local practice to follow-up with DHS. Some SSA offices have an arrangement with the DHS, USCIS office to telephone for the follow-up contact; other SSA offices send a copy of the original G-845 annotated “second request.”) If the DHS response is still not received within 15 federal work days after the follow-up contact (if the follow-up is by mail allow five additional federal work days of mail time for the G-845 to be received at and returned from DHS), make a second follow-up contact. If the DHS response is not received within 15 federal workdays (again, if the follow-up is by mail, allow five additional federal work days of mail time for the G-845 to be received at and returned from DHS), after two follow-ups, contact the RO. Also report to the RO any trend that shows a serious deviation by DHS from the above time frames. The RO will consult with central office.

    C. POLICY - EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION BY CLASS OF ADMISSION
    The following policy applies to employment authorization by class of
    admission.
    1. Aliens Work Authorized Without Specific DHS Authorization
    The following lists nonimmigrants, by alien classification, who are authorized to work in the U.S. without specific authorization from DHS. The alien's I-94 will not have the DHS employment authorization stamp
    and the alien will not have an EAD.

    RM 00203.210 Changing Numident Data
    B. Procedure – Evidence of a Legal Name Change
    Marriage document or marriage record to be acceptable as an identity document it must show, in addition to the new name, the person’s age or DOB or parents’ names.
    a. Bride Takes Groom’s Last Name
    In all 50 U.S. States (this means the 50 States, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands,
    Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa) the bride may take her husband's last name
    (surname or family name) as her new last name. (EXAMPLE: Jane Doe married John Jones and she may
    change her name to Jane Jones.)
    Interim Guidance: If the bride wants to take her husband's last name, accept the marriage document
    as a legal name change for the bride if the new name can be derived from the marriage document; even
    if the marriage document only shows each partner's first names, the bride's prior surname and
    husband's surname.
    C. Procedure - Immigration Document as Evidence of Legal Name
    When issuing immigration documents, the Department of State and DHS issue them in the person's legal
    name. The legal name is also generally the name in which the foreign passport was issued.
    When an alien applies for an SSN card, presume the name on the immigration document is the legal
    name unless the applicant presents evidence of a legal name change (e.g., marriage) that occurred
    after the immigration document was issued.
    In cases where an alien applies for a replacement SSN card and submits an immigration document
    showing a name that is different from the name on the prior Numident record, accept the immigration
    document as evidence of the legal name. In these cases, the prior SSN card may have been issued in a
    name that was not the NH’s legal name.
    Note: Also need proof of work authorized alien status.

    RM 00203.735 Requesting Online (Primary) Verification By SAVE
    E. PROCEDURE—ONLINE SAVE QUERY RESPONSE INFORMATION DOES NOT AGREE WITH
    IMMIGRATION DOCUMENT
    1. Name
    e. Applicant Has Changed His/Her Name But SAVE Query Response Shows Old
    Name
    In some cases, the applicant may have changed his/her name after DHS issued the immigration document (e.g., he/she has married and is now using the spouse’s last name) but does not present an immigration document showing the new name. In these cases, the DHS system reflects the new name only when the person provided the name change information to DHS and requested to have his/her immigration record changed to show the new name.
    When the SAVE query response shows the old name that is shown on the immigration document presented and not the new name on the identity document presented, do not consider this a name discrepancy for enumeration purposes. See RM 00203.200 when the applicant presents an identity document in the new name that is more recent than the immigration document to determine if the identity document is acceptable. Tell the applicant he/she must report the name change to DHS so that DHS can update its records.
    NOTE FROM ME: Procedure tells the SSA office to tell you to report the
    name change to DHS, not that it can't be processed.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If you get the SSN card in your maiden name and then apply for the name change DO NOT DO NOT give up your card until you get the new one. Say your dog ate it. LOL

    2. Card Returned With Request For Replacement Card or New SSN
    If the applicant has a card and requests a replacement card (duplicate or corrected) or a new SSN:
    -- Ask the applicant to return the old SSN card. (If the applicant does not have the card with him or her, remind the applicant to return the old card to SSA for destruction or to keep the old card in a secure place [not in a wallet or purse])
    NOTE: Do not forcefully confiscate the SSN card if the applicant refuses to relinquish it. Similarly, return the old SSN card if the applicant requests that it be given back
    Do not let it blank. If you don't have your SSN by the time you want to submit your AOS just write "NONE" in any space that asks for your SSN.

    Most people have no problem receiving the SSN card in the mail. On here you normally only hear from the people that had a problem. I think the name on the mailbox is more of an issue when you live in an apartment. If you live in a single family home, I don't think it would matter.

    B. Evidence of legal name
    2. Foreign born individual
    A foreign-born person’s legal name is the name shown on his or her immigration document.
    The only time you may process an SSN application in a name that does not agree with the name shown on the immigration document is if the person legally changed his or her name after the immigration document is issued. In these situations, the legal name is the name shown on the evidence of the name change.
    a. Name on immigration document and other evidence for an SSN are different
    When the name shown on the immigration document differs from the name shown on other evidence submitted for an SSN, process the SSN in the name on the immigration document as long as the name can be derived from the other evidence (e.g., foreign passport).
    If the required documents show clearly different names, do not accept the evidence to process the SSN application. In these situations, the applicant must submit SSN evidence showing the same name or submit evidence of a name change after the immigration document was issued.
