Dear Mr Senmartin,
thank you very much for your reply.
as far as we knew, the new employee was eligible to apply for SSN after 10 days upon his arrival to USA. According to your information, he had to apply for SSN at the moment of approval of his H1B visa. At that moment the employee was still in his native country. He arrived to USA only yesterday.
Also, what insurance companies can he use to buy his temporary health insurance? Can he buy insurance without SSN?
I was told by our health insurance provider that he cannot buy individual insurance because he has to be insured in a group under his employer insurance.
I am confused completely.
