How to remove ‘FNU' from Name in H4 Visa-based EAD card?

How to remove ‘FNU' from Name in H4 Visa-based EAD card?Overview: I'm on H4 Visa and applied for EAD based on my husband's approved I-140 and Valid H1B Visa extension in April 2016 and received EAD card with ‘FNU' before name. I applied for SSN based on this EAD and now SSN has ‘UNKNOWN' before name. I want to remove ‘FNU' from EAD card and have my name corrected in SSN System.Passport Name Updated: My Indian Passport (at the time of filing EAD and getting H4 Visa back in 2008) had full name written in ‘Given Name' field and ‘Surname' was empty. I have corrected my name in my Passport and it now appears correctly (last name in ‘Surname' and first name in ‘Given Name' fields).H4 Visa Sticker in Passport: When I got my Visa in 2008 from IS Consulate in India, it also has ‘FNU' on it. That visa is now expired and I have no plans to visit my home country in near future.Questions: What is the correct procedure to remove FNU from EAD card? Do I need to leave country for this?
