I received 2 letters from USCIS this week: Approval Notice of I821/I-821D (Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) & Approval Notice of I764 (Application for Employment Authorization).

I am really happy that I get both of them approved.

Today, I went to the Social Security Service Center to ask for temporary I.D. and Social Security Number, mainly to apply job and drive a car.

I bought the letters that I received and headed out full of hopes and joys. Before long, I realized that how foolish I was.

After an hour of waiting, the worker at the Social Security Service Center told me that I have to go to the D.M.V. to apply for the number and the I.D. card. I immediately went to the D.M.V. and waited for another hour. The worker at the D.M.V. told me that I need to bring my passport to the Social Security Service Center for the number then come back.

I am now really confused.

First of all, I do no have Social Security Number. My goal is to try to get the Social Security Number in order to apply for driver license and a job. What are the proper order and/or procedure that I need to do? Can anyone help me?

You need an SSN for a driver's license. So you have to apply for a social security number first. Show ID (like a passport) and work permit and apply for a number at a SSN center.

Here, this is very helpful:

Wait for your EAD card to be mailed out. Once you have your EAD Card then go to SSA with your passport and a filled out SS5 form you can find at the social security website. If you don't have a passport you can use your birth certificate. Tell them you're applying for a social. If you're lucky you wait 2 weeks for them to mail the number to you. If not it'll be a bit longer but you'll still get it. Once you have your number take it with you to the DMV along with your uscis letters to prove residency. I think take your passport too. From there it should be simple.

You mean I will receive a EAD card automatically instead or applying one? In addition, what are the benefits of having Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals approved? The more I think about it; the more confuse I become.

You will get a physical EAD card in the mail soon. Check your case status to see if they already mailed it out.

Bring your EAD card, passport and/or birth certificate, and the SS5 form to the Social Security Office and apply for a new social securtiy number and card.

When you recieve your SS card go to the DMV to get your Drivers License or State ID.


The benefits of having DACA approved are all listed in the approval letter. Take some time to actually read it.

Call me whatever you wishes. I am not trolling here. I just want to know all the benefits instead of lowing my tuition. I am paying as international fee for all my classes where my friends are paying the citizens fees.

But after I have my SSN, I could apply for citizenship. This will imply normal tuition fees, right?

You are a Troll, stop with the bullshit!

I am seriously paying for international fees at a moment due to not having a SSN, not a joke! If I821/I-821D will help me get SSN and colser to become citizen of U.S., it will help my lower my tuition. How is this trolling? Please, explain this to me? I am really desperate here. Do you have any idea how much the university international tuition compare to people who has SSN? Again, I am not trolling here.

How is the logic starting from: approved I821/I-821D, getting SSN, getting a job for income, become citizen for lower tuition, and use the money to pay for school is a bullshit and makes me a troll?

If my ideal logic is wrong, please, feel free to correct me. Do not falsely accuse me based soloy upon my ignorance. I thought this is a place to help who is in need.

Listen my dear, you are quite mistaken. We aren't here to offend you and I hope you aren't taking it to heart what others say. I'll try and answer some of your questions.

Deferred Action, whether approved or not, is in fact not a pathway towards citizenship. It's basically a "Relief Program" which provides us with the benefits of being able to work and getting a driver licence. It's not the Dream Act (if you never heard about it, I suggest you google it), which is a bill that would actually provide us with a pathway towards citizenship (Never passed congress).

You will get a SSN, but it doesn't mean that you are immediately qualified for in-state tuition. It depends in which state you live in, and which school you go to.
For example, I live in Florida and I know just about 3 schools that provide in-state tuition for Deferred Action applicants that gotten approved.

Thank you very much. I, now for sure, know that my logic is not entirely wrong. Thank you for clarify.

I've been a member of this website for a couple of years, I recognize trolling from a distance. I find it hard to believe that you never read the I-765 approval notice that clearly states that your EAD card would be seperately mailed to you, and that the approval letter cannot be used in its place as you attempted to do at the SSO office to get an SSN, it makes no sense whatsoever, sorry....
