My wife holds H-4 visa and was just applied with me for adjustment of status (I-485). From
what moment will she become eligible to get SSN ? (She still doesn't have it ). Will it be
receiving of EAD (work authorization) or she must wait until GC approval ?

Thanks.

I know of H-4 visa holders getting SSN based on legitimate reasons, car registration is
one example.

Definitely when she gets an EAD. She may get an SSN earlier if she needs it for some other
reason, such as a driver's license.

Thanks all for feedback.Just to let you know : need for DL is no longer a reason for
getting of SSN. At least in California since March '99. Fortunately, absence of SSN is no
longer an obstacle for getting of DL, though it was quite a headache to prove it for DMV.
Anyway, receiving of EAD seems to be a sufficient reason for SSN.
