LOL, you should get your new one soon. Here in CA they gave me back my old one while I was waiting for my new one. Same with my driver’s license.

Aw! They never took mine…weird. I got my new license and SS card the same day and I actually cried a little bit because it felt like the “old” me was gone.

WoW…i don’t know how I would have reacted to that. I didn’t take mine with me, so she didn’t have the chance to rip it up, lol I just got my new one today!

That’s strange. I got mine back “for my records”.

They didn’t rip mine up in front of me but took it and told me it would be destroyed.  I was kind of sad – I wanted to keep it.  But I think in this day and age of identity theft, they try to minimize unnescessary SS cards from being in circulation.

I didn’t need my Soc. card to get my new license -they just asked to see my current old name license and the marriage certificate. They DID give me a bit of a run around saying they needed my “registration” because they had to change that.  So I went back home (hubby had driven) and got it. Got back to the DMV to be told no, they needed my Title, not registration. *Sigh* I’m going to another DMV tomorrow, with both.

I think I would be sad too!  Mine has my childhood signature on it!  I remember practicing writing it before I got my card, and it’s really the document that is my first legal signing of anything!

I guess it makes sense why they do it, it’s just very odd that they’re so inconsistent!  I wasn’t even asked to show my old card.  I did need the new card to get a DL though, and many states are switching to stricter DL identification laws over the next couple years.  FL switched earlier this year.  I wouldn’t risk waiting in that long line without your new social security card!  But hooray for name changes!

I would be sad too! And I agree, it’s so weird that they’re really inconsistent about letting you keep it or not.

Guess I’ll find out sooner or later if they’ll let me keep mine…whenever I get around to actually changing my name on more than just my email signature!
