Chaning your name

So I want to change my name but I'm not in any hurry! I want to mail my stuff to the social security office. Anyone else do this? Or did everyone just go to the SS office? Just wanted to know if anyone had a bad time with mailing. Thanks ladies!!

Wish I could help, but since the SS office wasn't too far away, I went there instead.

I'm based in the UK so I'm not too sure how changing names in the US works but here it's a bit of a palava!  I have been married but still haven't officially changed my name because everything incurs an additional cost, passport, driving licence, etc... I have promised DH that I will after our trip in December though as we'd like to start on TTC and when we have kid, we all have the same surname.

I'm not much help, I also went into the SS office. I had time off work so it was just easier that way in case I didn't provide what they needed via mailing it in, there wasn't a back and forth of mailings

I mailed mine.  It took a few weeks, but I didn't really have any problems.

I need to check and see if I can mail mine. I changed my name on the driver's license but I am dreading going to the social security office. Ugh.

It seriously took me 5 minutes to change my name at the SS office. I was shocked. I went to the DMV after that but that...was...a...loooooong wait once I was there. But SS to legally do the paperwork? Easy peasy. I went on a Friday morning.
