  • SSN delay from long time

    Hi Friends,

    I have an H1 Visa since October 2015 and have arrived in the country in early December. I immediately applied for a new SSN on Dec19th and was told that I should have it by the 30th Dec. The receipt said that it usually takes up to 4 weeks.

    These 4 weeks have now been elapsed and meanwhile the SSA office where I applied has been telling me that my application has not yet cleared with Homeland Security. As a matter of fact, yesterday they told me that they have sent 3 reminders to Homeland Security and received no answer thus far, which, according to them, is a sign that the application is not getting cleared.

    Therefore, they (the local SSA office) told me that they will reject my application this Friday, having elapsed 30 days since I applied and no extension can be given.

    Even they are not sure whether i will get SSN sooner or not(if i reapply).I think even i reapply it takes same time.Can i call homeland security office? Does anyone have (or knows of) a similar experience and suggestions on how I go about from here?

    The local SSA office has told me that I can reapply, but is there any timing limitation or maximum number of times one could do so? Do Homeland Security allow for an interview to clear things?

    Is there anything I could do to by Friday avoid having my SSN application rejected by the local SSA office?
