If you changed your last name via AOS i believe you check yes so they will send you a new card (same number) but SSN will have your married name. That's my understanding at least (mine is still pending) but I also already have SSN, but in maiden name

Yep. Social security told us this when we went to get my wife’s new card. They said we could have just checked yes and they would have issued a new card in her married name. We had no idea.

I applied for SSN after we got married so I guess i’ll check “no”?

Is your current SSN in the name you want to use? If its in your maiden name and you want change your last name (which is done by applying for AOS in married name), check yes and they will send you a new SSN card in married name. 
 

or did you already get SSN in married name? I was under the impression that you can't do that until EAD approval, which is done in married name if you applied for it with your married name, but maybe i'm mistaken

I applied and got my SSN after I got married. So the name on my SSN is already my married name. And yes, you may apply for SSN before EAD gets approved

my case is more complicated.

I applied for SSN last month with my maiden name, and still not received it. changed my name after getting married, and now file for AOS.

so i checked "yes" in question 13, and check "yes" for issuing a SSN card. and noted down on the extra info page that i applied for SSN already

Even if you check "no", once you get your green card, you should go to the SS office and show it your green card and apply for a replacement. This way the new green card will not be annotated with "valid for work only with DHS authorization".

 

This is useful because if you ever lose your green card, the SS card without the annotation plus state photo ID is enough for the I-9 form for employment.

 

And also, each time your status changes, you are supposed to go to the SS office anyway.
