Re: SS card nme change question
I just did this last week. You will need to go to the SS office and take copy of new birth certificate, adoption decree and 2 other forms of ID (check SS website). I took our insurance card which had his new name and his Medicaid card with new name but there are other accepable ID.
Anyway, it is FREE and goes in effect at midnight the day you file. It was quick and easy. I filled out the application there but I think you can on line too. You may be able to do everything online but I'm not sure. We have a SS office close by and it is pretty much like going to the BMV
Good luck, no need to worry.
