If i apply for an itin for my nonresident alien husband, will he later be denied a social security number?

Asked over 1 year ago - Newburgh, NY

He won't be eligible for SS # until sometime in mid 2014. I would like to be able to file under married status next year but want to be sure I clearly understand the process, and am not inadvertently jeopardizing his resident status later on.

    Answered . He can apply for an ITIN and it should be no problem later. Once he gets his social security number he starts using that and stops using the ITIN.

    Answered . He should not be denied the Social Security, merely based upon his obtaining a TIN #.
