Applying for Social Security Number after Marriage

We went to the Social Security Administration today (December 28, 2011) to apply for my K-1 Wife's Social Security Number. We had all the necessary documents including the marriage certificate. We were told that the Social Security card would have to be issued in her name as shown on the VISA unless we first changed her name to her married name by recording our marriage certificate with the Department of Homeland Security. My questions are these. One, is this correct and two, how do I record our marriage certificate with the Department of Homeland Security?

Thanks for any help provided.

Basically she told you that you have to apply for AOS and get the green card in married name before getting the SSN in married name.

Not really correct because I got my SSN in married name and it was way before we applied for my AOS.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.
AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

ROC was approved in 3 months and 2 days without interview.

I don't know if it's correct but that is what I was told as well. She can get the SSN now in her maiden name, apply for AOS in her married name and then when she gets her EAD or GC in her married name, take either card back to the SSA office along with the marriage certificate to register the change.

Maybe that's what they meant by registering her married name with DHS because DHS currently has her listed as her maiden name and that's what's coming up when they access her visa info.

We went to the Social Security Administration today (December 28, 2011) to apply for my K-1 Wife's Social Security Number. We had all the necessary documents including the marriage certificate. We were told that the Social Security card would have to be issued in her name as shown on the VISA unless we first changed her name to her married name by recording our marriage certificate with the Department of Homeland Security.


My wife files for her Social Security two weeks after arriving here in New York. We received the card in 5 days. We are now married and will submit for name change on the Social Security card to her married name now. I am wondering if you can just submit with her maiden name then wait to receive the social security card. Then submit a name change to her married name. Total process should take from 10 - 14 days but I suggest calling Social Security Administration for detailed information and options.

Social Security representative between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, call our toll-free TTY number, 1-800-325-0778, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.

My questions are these. One, is this correct and two, how do I record our marriage certificate with the Department of Homeland Security?

Thanks for any help provided.


I am not sure on the process or how true it is " recording your marriage certificate with the Department of Homeland Security. ". Maybe other VJ'ers may have more information on this process...???

Good Luck and God Bless!!

No issues here. We're lucky that the SSA employee knew exactly what we were there for. She reminded us to come back and apply for a name change
after we were married. Patty arrived 9/2/2011, applied for SSN 9/9/2011, received SS card 9/15/2011. Married 9/22/2011, applied for name change on her
SS card 9/30/2011 and received new SS card with married name 10/5/2011.

Email the social security office and they will tell you to go back into your local office and try again because you are definitely allowed to have it in your married name, don't need to change it with DHS or anything. Print off the email to take with you incase they still try to argue, i know a heap of people who have done this recently and they got their ssn in their married name.

The same thing happened to me. The guy at the SS office was rather rude to me about it too. I only asked him if there was someone else he could ask about this situation, like a supervisor, because I wanted to make sure. Kind of annoying because I had to sit and wait like 3 hours, and will have to do it again once I get my EAD.
