SSN Name Question

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I have a sorta oddball question. Long story short, I'm working for a doctor in assisting getting him credentialed at a hospital, and the state is requiring his social security card to match his medical license, but his SS card has his proper name along with his mother's maiden name (so, he goes by John Doe, but his social security card reads John Doe Smith). He is from Uruguay, and all of his immigration paperwork (done over 10 years ago) has his given name, not his mother's maiden name. He is a permanent resident, not a citizen. I'm unclear about how his mother's maiden name ended up on his social security card, but bottom line, it's not his given name, and now he needs to change it. So, I have three questions:

1. What kind of documentation would be acceptable to bring to the SS office to change this?

2. If he is able to change the social security card, will he need to get a new passport?

3. Will changing the name on his social security card affect his immigration documentation?

2. If he is able to change the social security card, will he need to get a new passport?

3. Will changing the name on his social security card affect his immigration documentation?

1. He needs to take his green card to the social security office. The name on his green card is his legal name. They will make the correction and send him a new card.

2. Since he's not a US citizen his passport was issued by Uruguay and is governed by that governments laws and regulations. It has absolutely nothing to do with a document issued by the US government. So no, he does not need to get a new passport.

3. It will not affect his immigration status in anyway. He is just correcting a mistake on his social security card.
