So I am filling out the form to change my name with SS. On question 11, it says “has the person listed in item 1…ever filed for or received a Social Security number card before”.
Ok, I’m confused..of course I have..they ask in question 2 what my SS# is. Am I thinking too hard…I just don’t understand why they are asking again?

Hmm sounds like you are overthinking it. It’s probably for people who don’t have a SS card, like newborns or people from other countries.

@luli29: Ive never heard of filling out a form. I just went to the local Social Security Office and provided our marriage license and they did all the work for me….much easier than filling out a form!

I answered “Yes” to that question since I had a SS card with my maiden name on it. I think it’s a way to double-check that you are already a citizen with a SS # and card and just changing your name.

If you already have a SS card with you madien name, than the answer to that question is yes.
I had the same confusion as you though – I didn’t seem to make sense to ask that when I’d already provided my SS#.
