Immigration Update: New Form I-765 Allows Foreign Nationals to obtain Employment Authorization Document and Social Security Number Simultaneously

The updated USCIS Form I-765 now allows foreign nationals in certain categories or classifications to obtain an Employment Authorization Document (“EAD”) and a Social Security Number in a single form. See here. EADs serve as documentation to show employers that an individual is authorized to work in the U.S. for a specific time period. Previously, applicants needed to submit a Form I-765 to USCIS for an EAD, and then submit additional paperwork in-person at their local Social Security office to obtain a Social Security Number. The revised form allows applicants to apply for both documents in one filing without visiting a Social Security office.
