SS card with issue date?

    Today I received my new SS card after I updated my US Citizen status with SSA a month ago. To my surprise, the card has an issue date printed on the lower right side. Also, the design is a bit different because it has a nice golden thick USA letters printed on the bottom.

    Has anyone seen an SS card with a date on it? :confused:

    Yes, it's normal. My hunch is that this is an updated design with improved anti-fraud features. Whatever ...

    We have been putting aside money in the SS for years (since the H1B days) and now that we get new SS card with new date, would this effect our benefits (if any I agree LOL).

    I did receive my new SS Card with the issue date. The card looks good.

    No, I do not think it would affect your benefits rather it would show your new citizenship status.

    Thanks for the info. The following picture (from the internet) shows a baby whith his SS card looking exactly as mine with the date in it. So, it seems that this is a new practice but I am not sure if this is applied only to US Citizens (born or natuarilized).
