PhilN is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Social Security

I'm wondering if anyone else had this problem......

I got my green card a few months ago after moving over on a K-1. My SS card originally had the notation saying 'only valid for work with DHS authorization'.

So I went in to SS to ask them to update my SS record given my new permanent resident status and have this notation removed.

When the lady keyed me into the system she said she couldn't find me, so she'd have to send away to have something checked and that I should get my new card in about 4 weeks.

It's now been 6 weeks.......

Should I be worried and try to go back in..... Or is this a fairly common delay?

I'd go back in, if you can. It can't hurt. They seem to be really good at losing records.

She probably just typed in random letters and numbers, on account of she'd been hitting the crack pipe earlier and was jonesing for another hit as soon as she could get rid of you.

Keep chasing it, maybe ask to speak to a technical supervisor and get them to track the progress?

You should probably follow up with them; you can try calling the SSA's 1-800 number first, but you may need to go into the office. What she need to do is 'verify your status' in SAVE (their system). If it's been that long, I'm guessing that she didn't follow your update through to conclusion, so I'd take some action if I were you.

It happens every now and again. The only other time you'll need to do this is if you naturalize to US citizenship.
