And also, after updating my SSC, Iím thinking of updating my drivers license as well which says limited term, and is set to expire sometime late next year. Is it worth paying the license fees and updating it even though it wonít be expiring for almost a year from now?

And are there any other things that I should be getting updated or anything that we should apply for or whatever now that I have my green card?
CONGRATULATIONS! I'm happy to see more and more Dreamers becoming legalized. Yes please go and update your card at the social security office to remove that statement on your card.

Updating your information also allows them to keep track of your status and benefits you may qualify for as well. I would also suggests changing the IDs as well.
