Thread: I485/SSN/I765 advice needed

  1. #1
    Hi,
    K1 visa, married. My 485 is being processed.

    I need a (temporary) SSN - what do I need to obtain one. Or how do I? I need it for purposes other than work.
    If my 485/LPR is being processed - do I still need an I 765?
    As I understand LPR gives me the right to work legally.
    Advice appreciated.

    Hi Clarkey,

    If you want to work while I-485 is pending, you need EAD ( I-765).

    Call your local SS office and see what they need from you to issue you SSN. Some will do based on your receipt of filing for AOS, other want to see more solid proof of your valid status - like EAD.

    I was confused by the need to apply for both - the (approx) current waiting time for 765 is 6 months - I have already filed the 485 and hoping it will not take more than 6 months.
    I tried calling my local SS office - they don't believe in answering the phone. I will go down there in person to see if I can get answers.
    Thanks.

    If you don't get EAD after 90 days of applying for it, you can get a temporary one at USCIS local office.

    This is what I have been told by my local immigration and SS office who really didn't care.

    I485 should be processed July
    I765 would be processed September
    SS won't issue SSN without green card

    Local college won't allow me to enrol without SSN. Can't get a Florida driving license without SSN, etc, etc.


    It's a catch 22.
    Surely there must be another way.. ...
