Congratulations on your marriage.

If you legally change your name because of marriage you must tell Social Security so you can get a corrected card. You cannot apply for this online.

To get a corrected Social Security card, you will need to:

  • Show the required documents. You will need proof of your identity. Sometimes you also may need to prove your current U.S. citizenship or lawful noncitizen status. ;
  • Fill out and print an Application for a Social Security Card; and
  • Take or mail your application and documents to your local Social Security office.
