WELCOME TO AMERICA!

..................................................................................

So…you thought that a lengthy and expensive visa process and detailed interviews both at the U.S. Embassy and the country border were the only obstacles separating you from your “American Dream”? If only that could be true.

Once you recover from the whole fingerprinting and interviewing stress, you should take a deep breath because there is more to come. Whether you are a professional or a student, American bureaucracy will keep you busy for at least the first two months upon your arrival. You will quickly learn that one simply cannot function without the magic nine digits, known as a social security number (SSN). The social security system was designed to track income and earnings so that people could collect payments at a later point based on how long and how much they contributed over time. However, since the government assigns a unique number to each individual, other institutions like to use it for their own purposes. Not having the SSN will make it impossible to open a bank account, as well as to receive a paycheck! Finding a local social security office should be your top priority, especially since you will have to wait for weeks before you get your number in the mail. However, once it arrives, all the barriers and frustration will disappear, and you will be all set to start your new American life.
