Social Security Number Requests for H-1B Workers

Occasionally there are times when a new H-1B visa beneficiary attempts to apply for a social security # and the social security office says that they cannot locate the beneficiary’s USCIS records in their system.

In this case, the beneficiary will need to request that the SSA submit form G-845 to their assigned USCIS verification office.

Copies of immigration documents (H-1B Approval Notice and Case Copy) as well as the receipt number of the approved petition or application may need to be included.
