Updating SSA Details with citizenship information

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have read elsewhere on this forum that one needs to wait ~ 10 days post oath before contacting the SSA with new details. Does this still apply in 2019?  Also, do I need to have my original naturalization certificate when I go in? (I was planning on submitting a passport application and going in a few days later to the SSA with a copy of the naturalization certificate).

I would visit the SS office first as you might need the original certificate. I don't believe you have to wait 10 days, as they had people doing it at a table at the oath ceremony. Along with registration for vote, and passport application. When you send in for your passport it will tie up your original certificate for about 3 weeks. They mail it back to you a few days after the passport is mailed, so I would do the Social security office first, then passport.

Ah cool. I am guessing that if it is available at the oath ceremony, the 10 day restriction no longer exists? I have a day before I need to visit the passport office to submit my passport for an expedited application, so I might as well try going to the SSA office the next day (if I can't get it done during the oath ceremony).

Yes, at some ceremonies they have things setup for the SS office, voter registration, and passport application. Here in Las Vegas they do it, some cities I think have just too many people, or not enough people to do it. If you are expiditing your passport, I would think you will get your certificate  back pretty quickly also. I have only done it the regular speed, that is why I was saying about 3 weeks. I know for sure it will be sent separately from the passport for security reasons.

Updating this thread: I attended my naturalization ceremony here in the bay area. Looks like at least here, the rules for updating your SSA record still involve waiting "minimum two weeks" and then going to the SSA office or mailing them the details. They had a booth to apply for a passport but didn't have one for SSA updates.
