I am married 10 years but never changed my social security

Customer Question

I am married 10 years but never changed my social security card to my husband's name. Since he earns much more than I do, if we divorce I would want to claim on his social security. Is it necessary to apply for a SS card in my married name, or will it be enough just to produce our marriage license and perhaps divorce decree?

My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. Thank you for your question and for using justanswer.com.

All you need is you marriage license and divorce date. See SSA site for information needed: https://www.ssa.gov/hlp/isba/10/isba-checklist.pdf

Also see link: https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-10.html

You do not need a SS card with your married name.
