Broward County Name Changes

What's The Next Step When You Complete a Name Change in Broward County?


1. Before you go to Court, first get a certified copy of your marriage license from the agency that filed your marriage license with in Broward County.

2. Contact Your Local Social Security Administration For A New Social Security Card. - You need to provide to the Social Security Administration (SSA) your correct name and ID number for payroll tax withholdings and other benefits because a discrepancy between your name and Social Security number can cause a rejection of your income tax return.  When you go to your local SSA office, they will require you to file Form SS-5, the form needed to have a new card issued. Notifying the SSA will also update the Internal Revenue Service of your new name.  Here is a list of the social security offices located in Broward County:
