It has tobe before the 1 94 expires.We didnt know that we could apply for SSN before marriage ,and did immediately after marriage.Unfortunately i was turned away and adviced to apply later with EAD or GC.

Congrats on the wedding and wish you a smooth AOS.

Um, everyone?

You have a SSN, you have to wait until your immigration documents catch up to your new name. You are also legally allowed to use both names.

There is a procedure to correct the SSN record if the I-94 is expired without an EAD card or I-551. The only catch is you can't be issued a card in the corrected name without the EAD card or I-551.

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0100203510

RM 00203.510 Alien without Work Authorization - Nonwork Need for an SSN

D. PROCEDURE - SSN CARD REQUEST BY ALIEN NOT AUTHORIZED TO WORK

4. Correcting Numident Data When a Replacement Card Cannot Be Issued

If the alien does not provide evidence of work authorization or a valid

nonwork reason, explain that no replacement card can be issued.

Although a replacement card cannot be issued, the Numident can be

corrected if the alien has provided documentation supporting the change

(e.g., a name change).

If the alien provides documentation supporting the change, process the

SS-5 to update the Numident information but suppress the issuance of a

card. (suppress issuance of the card, and see RM 00202.320 for providing

SSN Verification Printouts.)

Really don't understand how SS office works but i got my SSN 2 weeks after i got married to my husband and the marriage took place a month after i got here in the US. I got the SSn card even before i applied for my AOS.

Is it new surname or your surname when you are not yet married?

If you are talking about the name to be used on the SSN application, you have to use the name on your I-94 until you are married.

RM 00203.210 C. Procedure - Immigration Document as Evidence of Legal Name:

When an alien applies for an SSN card, we presume the name on the immigration document is the legal name unless the applicant presents evidence of a legal name change, e.g., marriage, which occurred after the immigration document was issued.

I applied for SSN after we got married and even brought the marriage certificate as supporting document to use my husband's surname...but still SA office said I cannot use his surname unless I already updated USCIS about the marriage. Which means after I filed for AOS and received NOA...

It's ridiculous 'coz it seems that every SA office of different state has different policy for this... :huh:

Supposed to be the same policy no matter where you apply, just that some people don't bother to read it.

Nothing requires you to change your name with immigration before the name on the SSN record can be changed, as long as you have the required documentation for the name change. People need to read this stuff before they go apply and start yelling for a manager if the service rep at the front desk doesn't know what they are doing.

RM 00203.210 Changing Numident Name Data

https://secure.ssa.gov/apps10/poms.nsf/lnx/0100203210

D. Examples of Legal Name Changes

4. Name Change to a Name Different From Name on Immigration Document

Monica Mumma Stottlemyer applies for a replacement SSN card in her married name. She:

-- Completes an SS-5 showing her first name as Monica, her middle name as Mumma, and her last name as Smith;

-- Completes the other names used field, showing that name as “Monica (first name), Mumma Stottlemyer (last name);”

-- Signs the SS-5 as “Monica M. Smith;”

-- Submits a U.S. marriage document showing Monica Mumma Stottlemyer and John Smith married last week (the marriage document shows the dates of birth for Monica and John);

-- Submits a driver's license with her photograph that shows the name Monica M. Smith; and

-- Submits a DHS employment authorization card with her photograph and showing her name as “Mumma Stottlemyer, Monica.”

The U.S. marriage document supports the legal name change and is acceptable evidence of identity in both the old name and the new name because it shows biographical data (date of birth) that can be compared to the Numident record. Further, the name to be shown on the SSN card agrees with the name on the additional identity document in the new legal name (the driver's license).

SSA can process the name change request. Process the SS-5 to have the name “Monica (first name) Mumma (middle name) Smith (last name) to be shown in the card and enter “Monica (first name) Mumma Stottlemyer (compound surname) as an “other name used.” The compound surname must be entered the same way it is shown on the immigration document. Advise the NH to also contact DHS to change her surname to “Smith” with that agency.

Notice that it says advise to make the change, not must make it
