Shootursuprhero:  Did you check with the SSA to see if they’ve already sent out your card? I don’t see the point in reapplying if they have your app..

Shootursuprhero:  I’d check with the SSA. I was also married on Oct. 18 and applied for my name change on Oct. 31. My new card arrived in about 2 weeks. Did they give you a printed document to carry until your SS card comes? Like PP said, you probably don’t need to reapply, they may just need to send a new card out.

I guess it depends on where you live and the time of year you visit the SS office. My card took less than a week to get to me, but I went in April BEFORE wedding season. My local office said 2-3 weeks.

I would attempt to call first and see if your new card was sent out before taking any further actions.
