USCIS Revises Form I-485 to Allow for Social Security Number Application

Washington, D.C., August 9, 2021: USCIS recently announced that it would be revising Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, to include questions relevant to applying for a Social Security Number (SSN) or replacement card. In the past, applicants would need to apply in person at a Social Security office. These changes will not change the I-485 filing fee. The change goes into effect immediately as confirmed on USCIS’ website:

In the future, after USCIS approves a Form I-485, USCIS will share the SSN data with the Social Security Administration, which will automatically assign an SSN or issue a replacement card.
