  1. UPDATING DRIVERS LICENSE RECORDS at the DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES AFTER NATURALIZATION NB: This might be state-dependent. (I am in Florida.) Updated SSA Via US Mail - No Issues! Updated SSA via mail earlier this year. Was quick & easy. Mailed the passport (not naturalization certificate) with the required form, and within 3 days got the passport back, and within a few weeks got the new and updated Social Security Card (same SSN, of course, but with an updated issue date on it.) DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) Have heard that updating the drivers license was also a step to do after citizenship. Spoke with several DMV agents over the subsequent months, and heard conflicting stories, including - 1) "Yes, you should come in and update your record at DMV once SSA has updated their database." and 2) "No, there is no real need to come in to update your DMV record if there is no name or address change." Spoke with a Sheriff while waiting on the COVID Vaccine Shot line, today, and - 1) He looked at my drivers license and said that there was nothing on the physical license indicating that I was NOT a citizen. 2) He said, "Their electronic database system would normally have a notation indicating if a person is NOT a citizen." 3) He typed my drivers license into his console and said, "The Florida DMV database does NOT have a notation indicating that I was a non-citizen". 4) He said, "Since there is no notation on my DMV record that I am NOT a citizen, there is no need to go to DMV to update my record on their system." This occurred today, April 9th, 2021.
  2. Updating SSA Record after Naturalization - By Mail Just spoke with someone at the Social Security Administration in our area outside Tampa, FL. The SSA Representative confirmed that they are NOT having any face-to-face meetings with customers at this time (are not booking any appointments and are not accepting any walk-ins; only online services are possible). Updating your SSA record after naturalization is, however, NOT one of the online services available at this time The Representative said that we CAN update our record by mail by sending in the SS-5 Form directly to his office, along with the original naturalization certificate OR passport, and they will process it for us. He said to send it with USPS tracking, give it a week or so to arrive, and then call in to verify that they had received it. He said they will then verify the information over the phone with us, update the record, and then return the original documents we sent. He said we could expect to get it back in a few weeks. So, at least that might be a way to proceed. Since we have no idea when this covid-driven lockdown will end.
  3. Hi everyone, I entered the US on January 15. Less than a week later, on Jan 21, I went to the SSA office and applied for my social security number. The clerk seemed competent and all was well until she told me that my two middle names were entered as part of my first name, with the middle name field left blank, so for example Margaret Judy Ann as my first name rather than first name: Margaret, Middle Name: Judy Ann. She said that this was a common issue, but that she couldn't just type in the 3 names as my first name because it was too long. Because of this, she made copies of my documents and said she would need to have my information verified with the DHS. She said this could take 3-4 weeks, but that I didn't have to do anything else except maybe 'fix it with immigration eventually'. Because she didn't make it seem like a big deal, I left it at that. She gave me the paper confirming I applied for a SSN. The next day I got married and on Monday I filed for AOS/AP/EAD, having typed in 'Judy Ann' in the middle-name field on all the forms, since that is what I've been doing during this entire immigration process, including the K1. Today I decided to search about this issue on VJ and found several posts where people were advised to have their I-94 changed by going to a CBP deferred inspection facility. However, I'm not sure that would work for me since it isn't technically a mistake: all of my Canadian IDs (passport, birth certificate) make no distinction between first and middle names, they are always listed together as 'Given names'. This is also the case on my visa. On my passport, my name is entered in this format: Smith>>Margeret>Judy>Ann. So... should I do anything about this? Just wait to see if ss card will appear in my mailbox within 4 weeks? Should I bother trying to fix my I-94 even though I have no "proof" that I have a middle name? Since I typed in a middle name on my AOS application, am I correct in assuming that my greencard will have the correct info? Hoping someone else out there will have gone through this and have some insight!
