Next steps after Citizenship?

I know the Social Security card needs to be updated to reflect Citizenship. Does anyone know if this updated information gets carried over to the Passport, Driver's License, or anything else? Trying to figure out if we need to update the SS card before applying for the Passport. Also, does anyone have a guide/link with info on updating the SS card?


Wife's visa journey:

03/19/07: Initial mailing of I-129F.

07/07/11: U.S. Citizenship approved and Oath Ceremony!

MIL's visa journey:

07/26/11: Initial mailing of I-130.

05/22/12: Interview passed!

Take a look at this very recent discussion in this forum, it is related to your question.

I have been in the US since 1999. Just recently became a citizen, and I've never changed my card this whole time. Was not aware there was a need for change. If someone has an answer to the contrary I'd love to hear it.

Ok...I read the accompanying thread thoroughly. However, I was able to obtain a new US passport without any issues with my SS card. So, yes I believe I must still get a new SS card, but it did not affect my passport. Holding it in hand now :)

SSA needs to be updated as to immigrations status, this WILL affect your benifits later.

NON-Immigrant --> Immigrant, and Immigrant --> Citizen should be reported.

Follow this advice to the letter and you'll be fine:

http://www.newcitizen.us/after.html


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
