USCIS announced a partnership with the Social Security Administration. This will permit petitioners for I-485 lawful permanent resident status to apply for a Social Security number or replacement card as part of the Adjustment of Status application process.
I-485 What You Need to Know:
- Eliminates the need for green card petitioners to apply for a Social Security number at a Social Security office.
- Revisions will be made to Form I-485 to include additional questions to apply for a Social Security number.
- The change to this form is effective immediately, and will not increase the filing fee for this form.
