Hi all, I’m getting married in 1.5 months in OR. Between 2-4 weeks after the wedding my husband and I will be moving to WA. Should I just wait until we move to WA to change my name with the social security office/dmv? Or change it in OR so I’ll have my new name on my license before I move?

Change it with SSA first. It doesn’t really matter which state you do it in because it’s a federal agency. Wait until you move to change it at DMV using your new Social Security card.

I agree with PP. Please note that it takes 1-2 weeks to get your new social security card after filing for that name change. You will have a harder time changing your name for some other documents until you have a new social security card though.
