State/REAL ID in California with name not matching in SSN

Recommended Posts

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Indonesia
Timeline
I'm planning to apply for REAL/State ID once DMV is back to serving more appointments soon. I am adjusting from K-1 and I've already received my AOS NOA1 back in May 2020. I already have a SSN with my maiden name, I applied before I got married. Due to COVID-19 and Social Security offices closing, I didn't get the chance to change it to my married name and my I-94 is already expired. Has anyone successfully applied for State ID in California with their names not matching in their Social Security card/database?

You must change the documents first in the married name first before you get a real id

Also, if you haven't gotten an EAD/AP card and don't have your green card, you won't be able to get a DL in California (real id or the "previous" version), unless you want to get the one for undocumented residents.

Last fall, we needed to get an updated Social Security card for my wife before she could get a CA learner's permit.

 

Which took a bit of arguing with the SSA people because her original card had her patrynomic on it, and our marriage certificate did not, but eventually they realized Anastasia [Patrynomic] MaidenName and Anastasia MaidenName were the same person who goes by Anastasia MyLastName now ...
