My SSN card said "not valid for employment without INS authorization " that was removed post GC


Also get global entry if you don’t have it already


Thanks for the inputs!


Yes ^^ and also pay DMV a visit


Yup! Me neither! Wat is the process for this? I got my SSN a while back n GC after.

Go to the SS office and get it updated to remove restrictions on employment

Thanks K1 and A1.

I get a call from an unrecognized number - there is a pre-recorded message informing me that my social security number has been compromised.
