Frequently Asked Questions

Last Modified:

We will mail your Social Security card as soon as we have all of the necessary information. You should usually receive it within 7-10 business days from that time. Because we are experiencing slight delays in processing mail-in Social Security card applications, it may take us between 2-4 weeks to process a mail-in application and return the evidence.

If you are applying for a new or replacement Social Security card using Form I-765 and/or Form I-485, we will issue your card within 7-10 business days after U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services approves your work authorization or Permanent Residence application.
