    Name Change

    Advertisements
    Dh and I got married last week, I havent changed my name or anything yet and Im wondering if it's necessary for me to change my name in order to be enrolled in DEERS and whatever else I need to do. We're on a limited time schedule to get this done so it would make my life much easier if I can use my maiden name, I cant really think of a reason why it wouldnt be allowed I just want to make sure my ducks are in a row. I know it takes a little time to get a name change with social security plus the time of having the marriage license mailed to me from CA. Also, Im going to be flying in the next couple weeks in order to get the things on base taken care of and I would hate to put my DHs last name on the ticket and not have the name change process finished. Any advice? Thanks

    They just went ahead and put my new name on my mil ID so we've been using that for everything.

    No it's not. I got my military ID and was enrolled in deers before I changed my name. Once I did, we just changed it and I got a new ID.

    I was put in DEERS with my new name just with our marriage license, but we didn't have our mailed. It's not "certified" apparently, it was handed to us right after the ceremony but yeah, we didn't need my new social.
