Following update was posted to help students facing problems at SSN and Drivers License office at
The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) is aware of current difficulties that some F and M students have when applying for a Social Security number (SSN) or driver’s license. SEVP and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) Program are working on a solution that they will implement on September 14, 2012.
Currently, you have two options:
- Return to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or Social Security Administration (SSA) office in your state on or after September 14, 2012.
- E-mail [email protected], which may take longer than option one.
For Option 2, Include the following in your e-mail:
- Benefit requested (SSN or driver’s license)
- Family name
- First name
- Date of birth
- Form I-94, “Arrival/Departure Record,” admission number (11 digits)
- SEVIS ID
- Applicant’s physical address (required), phone number (required), and e-mail
- Address of the office where problem occurred (and the name of the official, if known)
- Date of the latest visit to office
- SAVE case number (if available)
- Current driver’s license/customer number and/or DMV receipt number (for DMV customers, if available)
While SEVP does not process benefits, a representative will contact SSA or your state DMV on your behalf to help with processing.
You can also contact the SEVP Response Center with further questions at either 703-603-3400 or [email protected]
Today is September 10, 2012. I would suggest you guys to wait for 4 more days and go to SSN or Drivers License office to apply for SSN, Drivers License or State Id.
