Hello Dear Reader,

I have a very important question. I have my personal health insurance at work and my spouse also has. I cannot add my spouse and my spouse cannot add me too because of closed enrollment for our different work place and we have been married for long.

From what i have been reading, it is good to have joint insurance, Please anyone with experience or has gone for interview, Kindly share what we need to do..? Is there any insurance we can both get outside to have our names on it? Please and Please kindly help by sharing what you know. If anyone knows any health insurance we can both get to have our names on it would be glad.. Thank you

Hi guys,
my case is taking so long now. It has been almost 11 months. Rfe was received by USCIS on August and no update since then. I am starting worried. What should I do? Is my case only taking long or is it everybody;s?
What should I do?

I called the social security office to see why my wife wasn't able to get her ssn number yet (she already has EAD). They informed me that there was some kind of mis-match of information and they needed authorization from USCIS to issue SSN. I called USCIS and they recommended that I set up an infopass for the situation.

Does anybody have any idea what the issue could be why USCIS would need to authorize a ssn although EAD has already been approved?
