Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Congratulations on your marriage!

You can report your marriage to Social Security in one of three ways:

1. Use your online "My Social Security" account. If you do not yet have an online Social Security account, you can register at the following link:

https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/

2. Call Social Security at 1-***-***-**** between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

3. Visit your local Social Security office.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
