  1. Sorry for any miscommunication. I didn't say you needed a SSN for health insurance or for a job offer. I said that the SSA considers those two things as reasons to request a SSN during COVID-19 closures to get a face to face interview. This information was given to me by my local SSA when I called them. Just relaying that info here.
  2. I called on many occassions also and told them that I really wanted to get one before my I-94 expires. Mine expires mid June. The social security office (depending on which one) considers having a job offer/ need for health insurance as a "dire need" to get a SSN. If you need a SSN to apply for state funded health insurance, I believe they will grant you an appointment. This is unusual, because many people say you do not need a SSN to get access to health insurance. Everyone says something different it seems.
  3. I asked to have a SSN to be issued through my I-765 as well (filed 1 month ago), but yesterday I was able to get an appointment at my local social security office and the person who interviewed me did not seem to be concerned that I requested one on my I-765. She said in the rare ocassion that I get issued 2 numbers that I need to contact them to get it fixed.
  4. When you call dont ask for a temporary SSN. You're just enquiring about a new card/number period. I'm not sure there is such thing as a temporary number? I could be wrong.
  5. I will do the same! I called the office again today and spoke to the girl who did my interview yesterday and she said she was going to call me by the end of the day to let me know how the processing of my application goes... I thought that was super nice of her as she didn't have to offer to do that.
  6. Many of us were unable to apply for SSN upon arrival because we arrived around/ after March 17th when the SSA offices closed due to COVID-19.
  7. Each office is obviously conducting business in their own way/their own rules. Is there any other office near you? I literally told my office that I know of others who are in the same siuation as me and they are being issued SSN's and I wanted to know why I kept on getting turned down... It seemed as soon as I started saying that + the need for a card for health insurance due to "dire need" they started to listen to what I had to say. I literally called multiple times over many weeks until they agreed to an interview... super frustrating.
  8. I'll call them up and see if they can fix it. It's funny coz the lady who interviewed me is the district manager and you would think she would have known that K1falls in that category. Hopefully she can amend it on her end.
  9. The only 2 options on the form that applied to me are: 1. Legal alien not allowed to work & 2. Other I'm on K1 and checked the first one. 🤷‍♀️
  10. Thank you Buma! I just gave her EVERYTHING I had and she was happy to photocopy everything. She said, the more the better even if it's not required haha! This is what I have her: - Passport - Birth certificate - Marriage Certificate - Drivers licence (Australian) - I-94 - I-797 approval notice for K1 - Forms I-797C for I-485, I-765 & I-131 (These were the only other documents I had in my married name that's why I provided them)
