    Question for you married ladies out there..
    I'm in the process of changing my name.. and I saw the Social Security Administration (and the DMV) both say it has to be done within 30 days of your wedding date. Did anyone do it later than that? Or is the SS very strict with that 30 day policy? I'm running really close to my 30 days and hope to go tomorrow.. but my work schedule is all across the board this week!
    Thanks..

      I work in an income tax office and a lot of women never changed their last names with social security. They didn't even realize they had to. I'm talking women who have been married from anywhere to 3 months to over 20 years. I've never heard of any of them getting in trouble when they did it years after the fact. That's all I know about it. wish i could help more. - Danielle

            i didn't even realize they had a due date. that seems silly since you can change your legal name at anytime. why would they put a restriction on marriage? i haven't changed mine yet but may in the future.
