January 6, 2014
Q) I’m recently married and moved to McDonough, GA. What documents do I need in order to change my name and address on my SS card?
A) To change your name and address on your Social Security card, you will typically need to provide the following documents:
Proof of identity: You will need to provide a document that proves your identity. This can be a U.S. passport, a driver’s license, or a state-issued identification card. The document should be current, valid, and show your name, date of birth, and preferably contain a photograph.
Proof of name change (if applicable): If you have changed your name due to marriage, divorce, or any other reason, you will need to provide additional documentation to support the name change. This can include a marriage certificate, divorce decree, or a court order.
Proof of U.S. citizenship or immigration status: You will need to provide a document that proves your U.S. citizenship or immigration status. This can be a U.S. birth certificate, a U.S. passport, a Certificate of Naturalization, or an employment authorization document (EAD) issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Proof of address: You will need to provide a document that shows your new address. This can be a utility bill, a rental agreement, a bank statement, or a driver’s license with your current address. The document should be recent and show your name and address.
It’s important to note that the specific documents required may vary depending on your individual circumstances. It’s recommended to contact the Social Security Administration (SSA) directly or visit their official website to obtain the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding the required documents for changing your name and address on your Social Security card.
