  • ive been married since sept as well. i haven't gotten my name changed yet. its complicated, hubby is in military we are stationed in tx. were originally from ohio. so i got to go back to ohio to change my name, get a new ohio driver license and get a new ss card. i wont be able to till this coming sept. no you wont get in trouble. you dont have to have your name changed.

  • You should get it taken care of as soon as you can, but I don't think it is anything to worry about. I got divorced and went back to my former name. The divorce was final the end of June 2010. I have to drive 2 hours to get to the nearest SS office. They screwed up with the address the first time, and I had to go back two more times. Even though I was divorced in June, it was never completely corrected until the very beginning of this year, so that is 6 months.

  • You never have to change your name at all, it is purely optional.
