Once I got the EAD, how soon should I go to get my SSN?

I remember, someone said, don't go it right away as their system is not being updated that quick.
Anyone did that before? :confused:

I applied SSN the very next day of receiving EAD and got the it in 10 days. don't think it's necessary to wait.

Got my EAD 9/26, went to local SS office to get me SSN 9/28. Takes me about 10 mins to fill the form wait with a number and took another 2 mins to speak to the clerk. Clerk said, the SSN should arriving in 7-10 days.

wife's EAD approved on 10/04. She got it in mail 10/11. Went by local SSA office and applied for SSN 10/12. Verification went through immediately and she was told to expect the card in 5-10 days.
