Hi, I'm in the green card process and I just received my work permit, I also have my ITN due to I'm a dependent. I did an application for a job and was accepted, Can I use my ITN and work permit for the job while I obtain my SSN ?
You may and to save you a trip to the Social Security Office one can now apply for their SSN and card (SSN card) on the same application form one applies for permission to work legally in the U.S.
The answer above is intended to provide only general legal information and does not create an attorney/client relationship. This answer is no substitute for a consultation with an attorney concerning the precise facts of your matter, and you should speak with a qualified, knowledgeable attorney to review all the facts in your case and obtain advice specific to your matter. Only when you formally retain me for specific legal work is an attorney/client relationship created. If you found this answer to be “Helpful” or to be the “Best Answer,” kindly mark it as such.
You may use your EAD for work, discuss the SS and ITN situation with your employer.

Use the EAD to get SSN. The ITIN is not a proper I9 document for proof of work authorization or identity. Review the form instructions.
The information provided is not to be considered to create an attorney-client relationship. The information provided is general in nature, and does not represent a thorough review of a situation or case, nor does it constitute legal advice on any subject matter. Seek a private consultation with an immigration attorney of your choice to obtain legal advice.
I recommend immediately to apply for a regular SSN with your fedela EAD as using ITIN would eventually create a possible fiscal discrepancy with your tax files.
