Changing both first and last name at citizenship

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys so as the title say I will be changing both my first and last name when my citizenship interview arrive. I will be taking my wife's last name and an entirely new first name. Would there be any trouble by doing so at other places like banking, employment or SSA?

Thank you

Once you get your naturalization certificate that will be the official name change document you would present to places to show you legally changed your name. Every place is going to have their own list of requirements for what they want to change your name but they will all accept your naturalization certificate- they just might want other things- for example some DMVs want you to have an updated SS card to give you an updated license, so youd have to do SSA first. Your employer may want the updated DL and SS card, so they might be last.

Ah thanks for the info. So I guess I will be starting at SSA and move from there.
