social security notes

Hi all

I have applied for AOS and recently got approved EAD. I have a SS card since I was on an F1 visa and worked on campus. It has a note on it that says valid for work with INS authorization. My question is if update my card with EAD will it have the same note, if so I will update it once I get my GC? Thanks for the help

Yes the EAD based SSN card will still have the DHS restrictions on it. Wait until you get your GC, then apply for a replacement SSN card - your SSN itself will remain the same.
