Name Change Resources for Colorado Residents

IF YOU LEGALLY CHANGE YOUR NAME BECAUSE OF MARRIAGE, DIVORCE, COURT ORDER OR ANY OTHER REASON, YOU MUST TELL SOCIAL SECURITY SO YOU CAN GET A CORRECTED CARD. YOU CANNOT APPLY FOR A CARD ONLINE, YOU MUST FILL OUT AN APPLICATION AND TURN IT INTO THE LOCAL SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE. THIS SERVICE IS FREE.

WHEN VISITING THE DMV, YOU MUST BRING THE LETTER FROM THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION THAT VERIFIES YOUR NAME CHANGE OR YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY CARD DISPLAYING YOUR NEW NAME. YOU’LL NEED TO BRING IN A CERTIFIED NAME–CHANGE DOCUMENT, SUCH AS YOUR MARRIAGE LICENSE OR COURT ORDER.

You must have your current passport to apply for a new one. Visit the site above and select ‘Passport Renewal’ to get the right forms.
