Change of marital status on Social Security, Recently married what do I need to do
A) If you have recently gotten married, you’ll need to report the change of your marital status to the Social Security Administration (SSA). Here’s what you need to do:
- Report your marriage: You can report your marriage by calling the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 or visiting your local Social Security office.
- Provide necessary documentation: You’ll need to provide proof of your marriage, such as a certified copy of your marriage certificate.
- Update your name: If you’ve changed your name as a result of your marriage, you’ll need to provide proof of your legal name change, such as a certified copy of your marriage certificate or a court order.
- Update your address: If your address has changed as a result of your marriage, make sure to update your address with the SSA.
- Wait for confirmation: The SSA will process your request and provide you with a confirmation of your updated information.
Your Social Security disability or retirement benefits will not change if you get married. However, other benefits such as SSI, Survivors, Divorced Spouses, and Child’s benefits may be affected by your marriage. You should contact the SSA to find out how your benefits may change based on your specific situation.
It’s important to report the change of your marital status to the SSA as soon as possible to ensure that your benefits are calculated correctly and that you receive the correct amount.
