@Nichol513:  I didn’t even know that you could mail in a request for a name change! I went to to the social security office to take care of it, and it was super easy. Is there some reason you can’t just go to the SS office?  I would be really uncomfortable with a) driving without a driver’s license and b) mailing in my only form of identification!

I agree with @pengoala:. I was going to suggest just going to the SS office. It’s a bit of a hassle, but less of a hassle than trying to get certified copies of everything.

According to the SS website…

“All documents must be either originals or certified copies by the issuing agency. We cannot accept photocopies or notarized copies of documents. Any documents you mail to us will be returned to you along with a receipt.”

So sounds like all of the documents. 🙁

I couldn’t figure out how to do this either, I just went and spent the 3 hours sitting down there and doing it 🙁

@Nichol513:  I just mailed all my stuff in and a copy of my DL *fingers crossed* I hope it works!I decided to mail it in only because I went there and there was a ton of people inside with a line out the door.

I’d just go down to the local social security office.  I lined up about a half hour before it opened and got it done in 15 minutes. 

I tried to go one time in the afternoon and there was a huge wait (like 2 hours), though, so the half hour in line before it opened was worth it.
