Getting a New Social Security Card

Obtaining a New Card

Getting a new social security card is extremely important after having a legal name change.  You must call the Social Security Administration and notify them of the updates.  Notifying the SSA should be the foremost priority and can help save time later.

After verifying your new name with the SSA, you will receive a new card with the same number, but updated name.  Keep your new card secure, because you will use it to verify your name with other government and public institutions.

If you remain concerned about receiving your new social security card and have additional questions, please contact us for assistance.
