EAD with married name, SSC with maiden name..PROBLEM??

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello VJ friends, I got my EAD approved, and should be getting it in the mail soon. I'm looking for jobs and most of them require my SSN in the application. I do have a SSC that comes with the restriction: "Work only with DHS authorization". So I understand that my EAD is going to be my DHS authorization...so no problems with that. My only concern is that my SSC has my maiden name, and my EAD has my married name. Am I gonna have a problem when applying for a job? Should I use my maiden or married name on my job application? Also, as soon as I get my EAD, employees will be able to check through E-verify and see that I'm allowed to work, or I need to go to Social Security office and ask them to activate/change my status in order for that to come up on E-verify?

Sorry, lots of question, it's just so confusing...

Any help appreciated,

Thanks!!

You can do a name change on the Social Security Card once you have your EAD in hand.

Thanks ryna!!

Should I bring my old SS card with me to the social security office? Will they take it away? Do you think they will make the change instantly or it takes a few weeks?

You will need the old card, your EAD and the marriage license. They will take the old one... It should only take 7-10 days to receive the new one. I know it's longer than you would like, but as long as you know the SS number, the employer can verify you in the E-verify system. With an EAD, the employer can't legally demand to see the physical Social Security Card. The EAD is a "List A" employment document and can stand alone as proof of eligibility.

In addition, you'll need the Social Security Card to match the name on the EAD/GC if, and when, you go for a Driver's License or State-issued ID card (in most states)

You can get your job today and fill out the I-9 form today. You will never need to show your SS card again as long as you live, if you don't want to, what means it could have the name Daisy Duck on it and nobody would know. If you take the time to look at the I-9 form, you will see that you will have to prove two things:

1) who you are

2) that you are authorized to work.

There are 3 lists of documents that are accepted for that purpose. They are in LIST A, LIST B, and LIST C.

Documents in LIST A fulfill requirements of # 1 and # 2; documents of LIST B fulfill the requirements of # 1 only, and documents of LIST C fulfill the requirements of # 2 only.

The EAD card is on LIST A, meaning it proves who you are and that you are authorized to work, all in one.

In English: if you have an EAD card, that's all you need. You submit your SSN which will stay the same no matter how often you get married and/or change your name, but you will not need to show the card itself.

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.

Yes, as long as they can verify me on E-verify, that's fine! I know my number, and I don't think they would even want to see my card, just my number...Thank you so much for your help...I really appreciate it! :)

Yup,

everybody who is being hired for employment is required to fill out this form. The employer needs to keep it on file for 3 years, but nobody gets a copy of it. Strange, huh?

You don't need to take the old SSN. I didn't. Wasn't even an issue. I took my passport, GC and marriage cert. No problem (when they actually took all the info they needed off the card)

That's good news for me.. I've been wanting to replace my card because, after a few trips through the washing machine when I was young (and it was still safe to carry the card with you), it has became Social Security Card dust. I just didn't want them to take it from me as what's left is the only document I have with my signature from when I was a child. It's more of a souvenir thing but I didn't want to give it to them just to get a new one. They took my wife's when she made a change, so I didn't want to get a new one for myself.

Ok, all set with that! I went to SS today and brought my EAD and marriage certificate, that was enough! Name change will be effective tomorrow, and I should receive card in 2 weeks. I'll have to go back there when I get my GC so they can remove the "Only allowed to work with DHS authorization", but at least now it has my married name. Didn't need old SS card, they didn't even ask for it!
