Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
What's the reason for the name change? Did you get married?
If she got married or divorced, she can use the marriage license or divorce degree and go to the local social security office to request a new social security card. For other reasons she have to visit the local court house and file a name change request form. She will have a quick chat with a judge and will get office name change letter. Than she can go to the local social security office and request a new SS card and records update.
