Having arrived in late March and married June 1st I am about to file all my paperwork. I would like to get my SSN before I send it all off though. It would also help with things like Health coverage on my husbands plan etc.

When I entered the States (through JFK) I asked for the Employment Authorisation stamp but the guy gave me some story about 'not doing that anymore' and so I dont have Authorisation to work currently. I understand that as a K-1 I am eligible for a SSN anyway without this but the 90 day period stamped on my I-94 is now expired. Is this going to cause a problem at the Social Security office? I married in time but I'm really not sure what my official 'status' is right now.

Any insight or advice would be gratefully received.

Go to this site, click the AOS K1/K2 link, and then click the "temporary EAD" link.
http://www.mindspring.com/~docsteen/...o/visainfo.htm Do as it says there. You
are still k-1 status until you file AOS. If the first SS ofice you visit gives you
grief on issuing the card, go to another one and try again. Show them the memo and
ask them to check their file for their original copy of it, that should help.

Hi All!

I'm sorry, but EM-00154 say unexpired I-94 K-1. You might start splitting hairs about
what status you are in, but I bet just about every office is going to verify status
with INS, so that's going to take about a month for a response, unless as I said they
feel like calling INS while you are there. Now what INS tells them is out of my field
of knowledge.

Take care,

Mike

Ros- Sorry to tell you- but one of the first two things you should have done when
arriving here in March, *before* marrying are: going to your local INS office with
your K-1 stamp and applying for your 90 day EAD. They may only make them up one day a
month like they do here in Baltimore- but if you *apply* before you are married, they
will still make one of them up for you, even if the day they have scheduled to do it
was after you were married. Marching down to your local social security office with
your K-1 stamp/visa in the passport and armed with the afore mentioned memo. That is
exactly what we did when my fiance arrived, and he received both no probs. The SS
card says work "only with INS documentation", but that's fine because he also has
that. We were married a little over 2 weeks ago, and plan on submitting our AOS stuff
by the end of this week. I fear because you are now married and you did not apply for
these documents whilst you were still a k-1 *fiancee*, and not an alien wife- which
is what you are now, you may well have to wait until you have adjusted status (or at
least applied) to get the proper SS card with your 1 year EAD. Or maybe not- its
worth a try. Good luck. Beth
