Name Change Information
If you are changing your name you should contact the following agencies after you have received your recorded Florida Marriage License back from the Clerk of Courts (typically takes 3-6 weeks):
Driver’s License: Contact your local DMV. Inform them you have changed your name and need the records to reflect the change.
Social Security: Call 1-800-772-1213, or visit www.ssa.gov for information.
Federal Income Taxes: Fill out your tax return using your new name. Social security should forward the information you filed with them regarding your name change to the IRS, so confirm the IRS received the information.
Passport: Visit www.travel.state.gov/passport for more information.
Don’t forget to contact other companies such as: bank accounts, investments, credit cards, insurance, legal documents, other bills and any other place your name is listed. You’ll need your Florida Marriage License to initiate these changes. Also, notify your employer so that your W2′s will be correct when they go to the IRS.
