Drivers License/SSS name change help

Ok-my drivers license is expiring next month-i want to change my last name to my husbands name finally. Do i have to change the drivers license first or the Social security?

THEN once I change my social i have to change my payroll info at work. I assume I'd have to change my name on the bank accounts for my direct deposit? If I change the name immediately but payroll isn't changed right away (due to processing times) I wonder if any pay will not get deposited because the names don't match on the accounts or does that not matter?

First I did the SS office (took me all of 20 minutes)

Then I went to the DMV and changed my name there.

Then I went to the bank and change my name as well. I'm not sure if the DD will be an issue, because the account # isn't changing. But I'm not sure.. See if they can issue you a check for that pay period while the change is being made.

Re: Drivers License/SSS name change help

i would suggest doing your SS first because it will take the least amount of time. I was in and out of that office (first thing in the morning) in less than 15 minutes. I also went to the DMV first thing in the morning and I was out of there in 20 minutes.

I would not change your payroll or your bank account until you actually have you new id back with your new name to avoid confusion

I I'd my license last bc you need a certain amount of points for identification. I bought a twenty dollar bridal name change kit from wedding best investment ever has pre written letters you just fill in your info, made the process so easy even with my professional licenses as well. Best of luck and congrats!
