Wish I would of seen this sooner, good advice. I was worried about going to get my SS card changed. It ended up being simple & quick. I got my new card in less than a week!

They still told me I couldn’t change my middle name at the local SS office here in Central Florida (Orlando.)  They only allow you to change the last name.  Boo!

Great advice! I plan to go to the SS office in the next week or so.

@xoxolaura:  do you have to have to wait for your marriage certificate to be mailed to you first before you go to the ss office?

Or can you take a copy of your marriage licence?

Social security plates no photocopies, but what about my drivers license? They need ID but I don’t have a passport or other state ID. If I mail my info in does that mean I have to go a week or two without my license on me?

@xoxolaura:  I have to go get mine changed now and it says on the site I need to prove im a citizen…..Cant I bring in my current SSC?  My dad said he sent in my birth certificate to get a passport when I was younger and my DH accidently threw out my current passport.

It’s a moot point right now — with the government shutdown, none of us can change our names and get new social security cards :(.

@thejucheidea:  Boo 🙁

@xoxolaura:  Also, what if I signed my marriage certificate with my maiden name (because I was undecided at the time). I can still change it I assume, right? Any hiccups because of that?

@bmo88:  I think you’ll need to have your wedding license re-issued to you if you decide to change your name. I’m not 100% on that, though. They may need to only change it in their records.
