USCIS continues issuing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals approvals. The turn-around time is about 2 months on average. When we applied for Deferred Action we also applied for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). Being granted Deferred Action means that the EAD will be issued soon. Once the EAD is issued, the recipients can take their documents to the local Social Security office and apply for a number. Social Security numbers take about 7 to 10 days to be issued. The closest office is at 2001 Siesta Dr., Suite 301, Sarasota, FL 34239. The phone number is 1-800-772-1213. They are open Monday-Friday 8:30am to 3pm.
Good luck to all those who applied for Deferred Action.
