If the alien applies to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for a different
alien status and DHS approves that request, DHS issues a new immigration document
reflecting the newly-approved alien status. For enumeration purposes, the new immigration
document supersedes all previously issued immigration documents.
If an applicant submits more than one unexpired immigration document, accept the immigration
document showing the most recent issue date. The document with the most recent issue
date reflects the applicant’s most current lawful alien status and is the evidence of lawful alien status that you must verify
with DHS before processing the SSN application.
NOTE: If an applicant submits an expired I-94 and an unexpired Employment Authorization
Document (EAD, I-766), see RM
