Please help name change confusion

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey, everyone!



1) I just got married and my name is now changed through the Social Security administration and a few other things but the name change process is not complete. I don't think my bank completed the process. When filling out the forms do I use my new name even though my tax forms and everything have my maiden name? Also, when I write a check, will it be a problem if my old name is on it?



2) Most of our forms are printed and filled out for AOS, we just got my husband's social security card. Is it okay if we write in his number on the form when the rest is typed?



Thank you!

Hi,

1. You should use your new last name if you want your documents to reflect your new name. The name on the check does not matter. Under the law of your state, you can have the legal right to take your spouse's last name. The marriage certificate shows the link between your maiden name and your married name.

2. Yes, it's okay to write in his SS#. There is no requirement that everything is typed.

Best of luck

It sounds like you are the USC, correct? If so, does not really matter if you use your maiden or married name on the AOS forms. You can use maiden now and married later for ROC, or use married now already. It won't matter if the check is in your maiden name.

Yes ,you can hand-write the SSN.
