I read that there is a new process to obtain a Social Security Number (SSN) based on an I-485 application. I filed my I-485 a few weeks ago. Can I use that to get an SSN?11 Aug 2021
It is true that the USCIS has now implemented a process so that one may apply for a Social Security Number as part of the I-485 application process. However, it appears this option is only available for I-485 applications that have not yet been filed. There does not appear to be a mechanism to add this SSN application on a pending I-485.
That being said, assuming that you also applied for an employment authorization document (EAD), once the EAD is issued, you should be able to use it to apply for an SSN. (11.Aug.2021)
