  1. Hi everybody, I went to the social security office to update my status after completing my naturalization process. I waited over a month after the ceremony where i was given the certificate. To my surprise, the SSA employee told me my date of birth on SS records didnt match what she found once she checked DHS records. Birthday on SSA is right, a different one showed up on DHS. She told me i had to fix this before she could do anything, that there was nothing she could do and that DHS needed to get the date corrected. This left me speechless, didnt and still dont know what to do. My green cards were always OK and even the brand new certificate of naturalization shows the right date of birth which i think DHS issues. I also got my American passport and everything went ok with the application, the book and card came with the right date of birth. Any ideas about what i can do? i dont think there is a customer service line for DHS. Any suggestions are appreciated.
  2. I have applied for my SSN in May 16th, and I didn't get a number yet. The agent from the SSA told me that my application is pending verification from DHS because it's showing that I am a US citizen instead of a F-1 student. I contacted USCIS myself and got a tier 2 call back. They refused to arrange an appointment for me. The SS officer just told me to wait. However, my summer internship only lasts 10 weeks. I have missed 3 weeks already. Is there any way that I can expedite the process? Or anyone knows how and what to do with the situation? Thanks so much....
  3. Hi All, We have this strange issue where we had applied for SSN about 5 weeks ago. Now the status on USCIS save check shows up as "case returned to the agency". After seeing that i call up the SSA office and ask them about the status they say that its not yet finished with the verification process and that i need to wait. " Case Status Case Returned to Agency Description SAVE has returned your case to Maryland - Social Security Administration, SSA (Single Signon) (WS37). What Do I Do Next? Please contact Maryland - Social Security Administration, SSA (Single Signon) (WS37) to get more information about your case status. "" I have called SSA office told them about it as well but they are just asking to wait. Has anyone also faced the same issue?
  4. I'm in the US on F1 Visa, I got a graduate assistantship job in school and I applied for my SSN on the Jan 18th, HR requires it before I can start working. It's been 7 weeks now and I'm yet to get it. I call the local SSA office I applied at every week since the first two weeks elapsed and I'm told my application is pending DHS Verification. I don't know if anyone has had this issue and how were you able to resolve it. I got a mail from HR yesterday and they said they might have to employ someone else because of the delay. I really don't know what to do. I need advice please.
  5. Hi All! I'm currently going through the K1 Visa process, I've been approved and already I have my interview next month. I will likely be moving to the US in the spring if all goes with at my interview. I was curious if I would be able to work right away after receiving my marriage certificate and before applying for AOS. I received my social security number when I was a student on F1 Visa that has the legend "Valid to Work Only with DHS Authorization". (see attachment for example) Does the process change for me? What do I have to do to remove the "Valid to Work Only with DHS Authorization" condition on my SSN? I'm just trying to prepare myself before I move so I can complete all the correct paperwork and do it efficiently for myself. All responses are appreciated!
  6. K1 visa Went to apply for SSN 10 days after arrival. He received a letter at the appointment saying they needed to verify him through DHS and that it happens occasionally. They told us it should be completed within a week or 2. We are 4 weeks out at this point. I've called every week since we applied and gotten the same answer that they are still processing it. The last couple of weeks they told me it normally takes a month, which is quite different than 1 to 2 weeks we were initially told. Is anyone else experiencing this kind of stuff? I read previous forums from 2014 about this and that it doesn't take this long anymore. So I'm just confused.
