Apply for an EAD and SSN Simultaneously using Revised USCIS Forms. 

Foreign nationals in certain categories can now skip the trip to their local Social Security office, and apply for a social security number within their application for an employment authorization. USCIS has revised Form I-765 to include additional questions that allow a work authorization applicant to simultaneously apply for a social security number. After receiving their EAD card, approved applicants can expect their Social Security Card within two weeks.
