Do you have an approved H1B petition that was filed on your behalf?  You do not need an SSN to have your visa stamped, however you will need one to work.  When you provide proof to the SSN administration that you are authorized to work, you will be provided an SSN.  How do you qualify for the H1?  If your husband has an H1 you will be permitted an H4.  Keep in mind, H4 are not permitted to work.
