A few questions on names and SS cards for K2.

1.) On Spanish surnames, do most people use the paternal surname or hyphnate it?

2.) My fiancee and I use another name for our daughter and well are hoping to add it to her name. Are we allowed to do that on the SS form application, or does it have to be formal?

3.) Answer two may answer this question, but due to Peruvian law, can we use my surname for our daugther's name or does it need to an official marriage?

Thank you.

legal names,

A foreign-born person’s legal name is the name shown on his or her immigration document, for example, Form I-766.

When the name shown on the immigration document differs from the name shown on other evidence submitted for an SSN, we process the application in the name on the immigration document as long as the name can be derived from the other evidence, for example, a foreign passport.

If the required documents show clearly different names, we cannot accept the evidence to process the application. In these situations, the applicant must submit evidence showing the same name, or submit evidence of a name change that occurred after the immigration document was issued.

RM 10212.001 Defining the Legal Name for an SSN:

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0110212001

The number holder’s (NH) first and last name on his or her SSN card must agree with the first and last name shown on the document submitted as evidence of identity or legal name. A middle name or suffix is not considered part of the legal name. It does not matter if the middle name or suffix is included, omitted, or incorrectly shown on an SSN card.

The SSN card has two lines for the NH’s name with 26 spaces on the first line for the NH’s first and middle names and 26 spaces on the second line for the last name and suffix, if any. Neither the first or last names shown on the SSN card should be reduced in length, unless it exceeds the 26-character limit. Therefore, omit middle names, middle initials, and suffixes if they prevent you from showing as many characters as possible for the first and last names.

RM 10205.120 How the Number Holder’s Name is Shown on SSN Card:

http://policy.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0110205120

BTW a child with K-2 status cannot be assigned a work authorized SSN without an I-766 (EAD Card) or I-551 card (Green Card) or stamp.

Yes, thank you as I knew that on the k2 and also the citation, but again to go back to the double surnames, because there are two apellidos, and in Peru both are legally her name, although she can and people do use at times the father, furthermore, we in the US only use one surname

Thus would Juana Hernandez de Cortes be that name or just shortened to

Juana Hernandez?

Especially as in the US, may would look at that and assume that Cortes is the main surname when in reality it would be Hernandez.

Thanks again
