I will like to know....

Asked over 1 year ago - Miami, FL

I lost my new 10 year green card. I have already filled a replacement card, I have gone for my biometrics appointment. So I used the i-551 stamp I have in my passport to get my social security number. And now I need a job but I have not received my new GC yet. Can I use the i-551 stamp I have on my passport and my social security card to get a job?

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Yes, you may present the I-551 stamp. Note that the I-551 stamp is different from the I-551 card. Either can be presented but, as my colleague pointed out, the stamp is subject to reverification. If you produce the stamp, you do not need to produce the SS card. If your employer participates in E-verify, you will need to provide your SSN.
