jessielee13 :  DH and I got married about 3 weeks ago. (Still can’t believe I have a husband!!)  We picked up our marriage certificate last Monday, then went directly to our local Social Security Administration office in NJ.  With the proper form and ID (instructions here), we both hyphenated our last names and should have new Social Security cards in a week.  After we receive them, we can go to the DMV and get new licenses and start to change our names…well…everywhere!  As far as I can tell (from a quick Google search), Florida is similar to NJ. 

Good luck and congrats!

In MN you list both names before wedding and both names after marriage.  Hubby stayed the same, I changed.  We dropped off the license in the mail on our way out of town, rec’d the notorized copy ten days later.  I went to the DMV asap to get my license changed.

You can’t do anything until you get that license back with the raised seal.  SS office is next, then passports.  Banking changes are next week.

Best wishes and good luck!!!
