Hi, i got my Employment Authorization Card in the mail yesterday afternoon. I was about to go over to the local SS office here in Houston to apply for my SSN when i read online that processing new SSN applications falls under the list of items they DONT do while in the current shutdown. my question is, can i find a job and work using my Employment Authorization Card Alone? My Employment Authorization Card is connected to my AOS case, which i have an interview for with my Wife next week. There are no terms nor conditions stated on my Employment card.
Yes, you can accept work with your Employment Authorization Card. In essence, you have been granted authority to obtain work legally. This shutdown will hopefully end soon, and when it does, I urge you to go to SS office and follow through with getting your social security card.
