  • No you don't. You keep the same number you had before.

  • No your social security number doesnt change ever. Its always going to be the same, just your last name could change if you chose to change it.

  • No. Your social security number stays the same as does his. If you change your name you contact the social security office and they send you a new card with your new last name on it, but the number is the same.

  • No, like the pp's said, you keep your own ssn. You can get your name changed on yours, which, if you take his name when you get married, I would suggest you do, otherwise it can cause you problems at tax time and stuff.

    Now, if he's military and you aren't and you get married, you'll find that you end up using his ssn a lot more than you use your own, but that's because he's your sponsor, not because you have the same number he does.

  • Nope... that would kind of mess up the SS benefits if and when there was a divorce, too many for a lot of people to draw their benefits on (I know a few people that are on their 4th marriage).
