Bridgeport, CT asked in Immigration Law, Tax Law and Social Security for Connecticut

Q: Is there any way to get a temporary SSN ?

Hi, I have a question about the authorization to work.

I am in a process to get the permanent residence, because my husband is an american citizen, but I have been waiting for the SSN around three months and I have not received anything yet. So, is there any way to get a temporary SSN until I get the real one?

I called immigration and they said that they do not know when exactly When I will receive the authorization to work.

Thanks so much for any advice.

A: Once you get the work authorization, you can apply for a social security number. It may take four or five months to get the work authorization.
