need some advice on social security number!

Hi guys,

My husband and i are moving from UK to New jersey next month on an E-2 Visa.
I need help in every aspect of this as i dont know where to begin!

How do i get a social security number and can i apply online BEFORE i get to new jersey? or do i need to  go into the SS office?
once i have applied for a SSN, How long does it usually take until you can start work?

Also what other things do i need to arrange on arrival/before i arrive in new jersey?

HELPPPP!

thanks
Rosie xx

You must visit a SSA office, it will take about 2 weeks to receive your number/card.
