Milind,

We did the same for both me and my spouse. I think we applied on Sept 5. I got mine within a week. Its been more than a month and we have not received my wife's SSN. We did call SSA on Sep 22 and they said everything was fine and we should receive it soon, If we do not receive by the end of the month go again to the local office. Have not received it yet, So plan to go to the SSN local office again tomorrow. My guess is it could have got lost in the transit.

Hope this helps.

Do you need to apply for SSN after getting GC? i was thinking that everyone who is working already has SSN... Do you have to get new one? that does not seem right??? please advise

Raj,
You dont get a new SSN. You just remove the restrictions that is on your previous card.When u become a LPR you should get a replacement card without any restrictions.If you read my post i mentioned SSN card replacement. I am sorry it might have mislead you otherwise.
