ssn for h4 to h1


Recommended Posts

Hi my wife came to us on h4 visa but she got her H1b approved recently and start on Oct 1. H1 approval notice has I-94 also.we went to ssn office to apply ssn with H1b approval notice, passport , offer letter and address proof. They denied that they won’t process ssn as they want EAD card. Not sure what do any suggestions?

She has to wait until the H1 kicks in. Right now she is on H4 and can't get an SSN unless she also has an EAD.

Employers and their payroll systems know how to handle situations where an SSN has been applied for and not yet received. The employer has to pay her once the H1 kicks in, even if she doesn't have the SSN yet.
