Heads up ladies! If you are in the midst of filing for your new Social Security Card with your new married name on it, the wait will be longer than normal. As this office is without funding, they cannot issue new documents until they re-open and handle the backlog of applications.
I called the Social Security Administration and they advised to wait to mail your SS-5 application for a new Social Security card until funding is re-instated. Until then, you’ll be using your maiden name.
The good news is that you can use MissNowMrs.com to auto-complete all of your name change forms so they’re ready to file as soon as this shutdown nonsense is behind us!
