I've been in the SSA earlier to change my last name into my husband last name but they didnt let me because they said that the USCIS didnt updated it in the system yet,,,,,, Is anybody here experienced this. I am just wondering why they approved the EAD and i received it already and they are not yet updating it in the system, how long does it takes to be updated in the system? anyone? anyone hehehe

Is your EAD in your married name or your maiden name.... if it is in your married name you can use that at the SSA to show USCIS know your name change...

Did the SSA office accept your application for the name change? If your marriage certificate has your age or date of birth, that and your EAD card is all you should need. However, your EAD status still needs to be verified. If it can't be done through SAVE as it sounds like yours can't they send a Form G-845 to immigration to verify your status. That could take weeks or months.

SSA just changed the procedure for name changes do to marriage and divorce and put out EM-06064 on it last week.

It's on the SSA Website at:

http://tinyurl.com/f7s8l

This basically the change:

Only the marriage document (foreign or domestic) is needed if it meets the following criteria:

-- The new name can be derived from the marriage document, i.e. bride takes the groom's last name, groom takes bride's last name, compound name (with or without hyphen) of each spouse's original name for either or both parties.

-- The marriage occurred within the past two years

-- The marriage document shows sufficient identifying information (e.g., biographical data such as age, date of birth or parent's names), and

-- The identifying information matches the information on his/her current Social Security number record.

The applicant will need to submit an identity document in the old name along with the marriage document if:

-- The marriage occurred within the last two years and has biographical Information, e.g., age, date of birth or parent's names which does not match our records, e.g., the SSN record.

-- The marriage occurred within the last two years, but does not show biographical information, or

-- The marriage occurred over two years ago (with or without biographical information.

The identity document used to establish the old name must match the name on the current SSN record. The identity document is acceptable even if over two years old or expired.

When issuing immigration documents, the Department of State and Department of Homeland Security issue them in the person’s legal name. The legal name is also generally the name in which the foreign passport was issued.

When an alien applies for an SSN card, SSA presumes the name on the immigration document is the legal name unless the applicant presents evidence of a legal name change (e.g., marriage) that occurred after the immigration document was issued.

In cases where an alien applies for a replacement SSN card and submits an immigration document showing a name that is different from the name on the prior Numident record, accept the immigration document as evidence of the legal name. In these cases, the prior SSN card may have been issued in a name that was not the number holder's legal name.

This is in addition to proof of current lawful employment authorized status.

I don't understand what you mean that you have your marriage certificate, but used your name?

Do you mean that you were already married when you originally applied for your SSN and you applied with your maiden name. Now that you have your EAD card you want to change your SSN record to your married name?

If that's what you mean, the SSA office should accept your application if you submit your EAD card and marriage certification and your marriage certificate has your age or date of birth. However, as I said your EAD status will need to be verified.
