Regarding the social security thing. I already had a SS number from a previous stint here in the US, but the rest of my family didn't. Apparently the first ones they sent out to them were sent back as returned mail so they resent them again. They arrived within a week.
 
We're heading over at the beginning of November for a holiday then the rest of family are flying back to Australia and I'm staying. Hoping to find a job within 3 months so the they can come over and join me. Looking at Raleigh, NC as our first home in the US.

Not looking forward to going through immigration with children though, what's everyone's experience been so far with the wait times?

I recently went thru lax to activate and it was over three hours to get thru immigration. My flight though arrived at 5:30pm so I don’t know if it was a bad day or just an anomaly.

Hopefully it will be a quick process for you guys.
 
Is there anyway to check or get a SSN reissued if I didn’t receive it without physically going to SSA to get one? It’s been 6 weeks since my activation trip and I’m not moving til January so would really like one before I get there to apply for jobs in advance. Can you go through USCIS to get one?

Nope. In person only...

Applying for jobs doesn't require a SSN. Comes into play after being hired and pay setup.
