Reporting Your Marriage to Social Security

Hppy Couple

Once the dust has settled form your wedding day, and you are back from your honeymoon, you both need to get on with the day-to-day life of work, household chores, and also updating social security with the recent changes.

Any changes in your life that affect your benefits or other government funding need to be reported as soon as possible.

Getting married, or even just moving in with your partner, or entering into a Civil Partnership, all must be reported.

Failure to report these changes can unfortunately be viewed as fraud. So one of the first things on your list to do after you are married is to update social security.

For the new wife, if she is changing her surname, she also must make necessary changes to her drivers licence, bank accounts, passport, and other important documents.

You want everything to be on the same page and consistent now that you are married.

There also is the changing of beneficiaries on life insurance policies, retirement and pension changes, and also for many young couples, they may need a Will.

Your special day is a big day, but it is the first day of your new lives, and these changes may need to be reported to social security as well as other agencies.
