Thank you!  I have been all over the internet and weddingbee, trying to figure out how social security determines your name based on the marriage license (our marriage license only has previous names, not names post-wedding).  It sounds like, if my luck follows yours, I should not have a problem!

Thanks again and congrats on your recent marriage (and successful name change)!

In NC you’re marriage license has nothing to do with your name change – only serves as a proof of reason to allow you to do it.  You go to the SS Office and fill out the form with how ever you want your new name to be.  So glad you figured your situation out but I had no idea it was so difficult elsewhere!

In CO the SSA was the same way.  You go there with the marriage license and they change your name how you want.  Some states want you to go to the DMV first though so I would check with your individual state.

Florida is the same process.  Just go into the SS office.  They will ask how you want your name to be shown.  You will verify it and be on your way.

BTW, they said my new SS card would take 2 weeks to get here and I got it in about a week.
