Thanks for answering that one for me. I was kinda fuzzy about the details.
By the way, i lifted the ff. off the SSA website, among the other items they require for them to issue a number, this was one of them...
"Citizenship or immigration status: We can accept only certain documents as proof of U.S. citizenship. These include a U.S. birth certificate, U.S. consular report of birth, U.S. passport, Certificate of Naturalization or Certificate of Citizenship. If you are not a U.S. citizen, Social Security will ask to see your current U.S. immigration documents.
Acceptable documents include your:
Form I-551 (includes machine-readable immigrant visa with your unexpired foreign passport);
I-94 with your unexpired foreign passport; or
Work permit card from the Department of Homeland Security (I-766 or I-688B).
...just wanted to know, will the number be issued if the nurse has the EAD (I-766), foreign passport and I-94 only (like when the I-485 is still processing)? I guess what I mean to ask is, in your understanding, do ALL 3 documents they listed as acceptable papers have to be submitted or do we get to pick just one or a couple?
Thanks Suzanne, Merry Christmas!
