@jesssamesssa:  That’s messed up! How frustrating. Social security is a bitch. Hopefully this will all clear up soon. So unfair.

I didn’t even think about that!  A name change with insurance will be quick and easy.  you mail in the marriage certificate and they will mail you a new card.  It sucks that you have to wait though.

a pain and a hassle but at least you are getting a paycheck.

Same goes for us….I really hope it ends soon so we can get all of our paperwork in order. I guess at least we’re still able to travel internationally for the honeymoon. And more than anything, that our jobs have not been affected.

Same here! Getting hitched Sunday but I plan to start using his name.


I little different situation in my house regarding the SS office is my 15 year daughter was ready to get her learners permit to drive so she and I recently went up to the local SS office to get a copy of her SS card since her father had hers when he passed and we have nooo idea where it is. They were doing everything BUT replacing SS cards because of the shutdown…I had one very irritated 15 year old lol

@ajillity81:  That is really horrible.  I can’t imagine.  I hope a deal is worked out ASAP for people like you.  I also keep thinking of all the kids going to bed hungry because they are not getting their supplemental nutrition benefits.  This situation is ridiculous and people don’t understand who and what is being affected.

I feel for those who are having challenges with the name-change thing; Iʻm actually in the same boat.

But thatʻs a minor irritation compared to living without income since the end of September, like ajillity81. Weʻre drawing on our savings and feeling pretty worried. As the previous poster says, those responsible for this shutdown, and those who are happy for it, have no idea about how itʻs affecting people – or else they know and donʻt care in the least.
