I want to change my name from my maiden how do I do that? – Social Security Name Change

Q) When I got married my husband was not a citizen, I never took his name because when he came to America his last name was not on his documents correctly. He became a citizen then his name was corrected now I want to change my name from my maiden how do I do that.

A) According to Social Security Administration; To change the information on your Social Security number record (i.e., a name or citizenship change, or corrected date of birth) you must provide documents to prove your identity, support the requested change, and establish the reason for the change. For example, you may provide a birth certificate to show your correct date of birth. A document supporting a name change must be recent and identify you by both your old and new names. If the name change event occurred over two years ago or if the name change document does not have enough information to prove your identity, you must also provide documents to prove your identity in your prior name and/or in some cases your new legal name. If you were born outside the U.S. you must provide a document to prove your U.S. citizenship or current lawful, work-authorized status. See page 2 for an explanation of acceptable documents.Read more
