License first! I did my social security card first, and when I went immediately to the DMV they said that since my recent SSC change was processing, it would take a bit longer. They told me I should have come to the DMV first to get it changed, it would have saved lots of hassle!

Not sure the reasoning as to why, that’s just what they told me. I’m a military spouse, not that that affects the situation, but I know lots of new spouses coming in that need to change their name and drivers license, and they always do DMV first.

Congrats!! I was so excited when I changed mine =]

I thought you were supposed to do your social first.  That’s what I did and didn’t have any problems.

I got my social security card changed when I lived in CO and then waited for my new license until I went to AL.  I would check with the change in NY, which one is required first.
