  • H4 to H1-B ..eligible for SSN ?


    My spouse has her H1-B approved and would be starting her employment from Oct 2008. She went to a bank to open a new account in her name for Direct deposit from the employer, but they asked her for her SSN. When can she apply for her SSN ? She will be on her H4 visa till Sept 2008, and then on her H1-B from Oct 2008.

    Thank you

    Last year one of my friends went to SSN office with approved petition. The officer at SSN office asked them to come on Oct-1 since the I-94 on 797 is effective from Oct-1.
    I am not a lawyer and this is not a legal advice. Use it at your own risk. Consult professionals before getting into an action.

      Banks do open accounts with Tax ID as well. As far as SSN goes, they will accept the application only on or after Oct 1st.

      I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.
