I changed my checking account and information with accounting before I did anything else. I had to get caught up at work before I could take the time off to go to the social security office so I did what I could first. Bank account and then accounting at work which took care of changing my name on my direct deposit, any work records, as well as my health insurance and adding DH to my health insurance, then I went to social security, then I went to the DMV and changed my name on my license and registration and then I called my insurance company and changed it with them.

That was all I did in the first two weeks. Then as bills came due I was changing my name at the same time I made payments. And then I finally got around to changing my notary about 2 months later. The only thing I have left to do is my passport.

I don’t see why you shouldn’t order business cards to change your email address. My IT department sucks so my email address won’t be changed for about 2 more years. Just make sure they keep your old address active and have it set up to forward any emails sent to your old email address.

Some work places will only change your name in the system, and not your actual email address.

When you change your name with payroll (w-2) etc the rest usually follows.

Mine was all changed by my workplace, but I’m a nurse and we use electronic records, so I had to wait for it to all be changed till my name change was legal.

You might want to wait to change your name with accounting until you change your name at the bank.  You don’t want to get a paycheck you can’t cash!

Yesterday was my first day back since the wedding and my email and contact information was changed then. I didn’t change anything with Payroll yet since I don’t want there to be any confusion with my direct deposit but the email and stuff really doesn’t make a difference. It has been weird though. I’ve had quite a few co-workers question who I am now that I changed my email. It’s funny because my DH works for the same company and I’m pretty sure everyone and their brother knew that we were getting married this weekend.

I changed mine pretty much immediate. I changed it in payroll once I changed it at my bank, with the understanding that I’d get my SS changed asap.

I still haven’t changed my name at work (over a year later).  My company has a pretty terrible system with name changes (that results in lost emails and other confusion).

I’m currently job searching so I’ll change my name at work with my new job.
