    Issues in SSN due to lengthy last name

    Hi -

    I am posting this as I was not able to find a similar case after reading through other threads in the site.
    I applied for an SSN on Jan 14 and still waiting for the card. This is how my name is in all my docs - passport, VISA, I20, I94:
    First name: A (7 characters)
    Last name: B C(28 characters including space)

    The folks at the SSA office accepted my application for SSN (due to name match in all docs i provided) but they couldn't instantly verify it online due to my lengthy last name. So I got a letter saying they need upto 4 weeks to verify my immigration status.

    Also, in the SSA database they were not able to fit my entire last name. So they split my last name and put a part of it as my middle name:
    First name: A (7 characters)
    Middle name: B (13 characters)
    Last name: C (14 characters)

    I am still waiting for DHS to verify my immigration status. It has been already 2 weeks.

    Now my doubts are:
    1) Will I be getting an SSN with First name A, middle name B and last name C? If so, will there be any issues later in getting a license as the name on I94 and SSN donot match?

    Been stressed out a lot lately because of this. Appreciate a response.

    Regards
    Vicky

    I have to express my strong opinion on your problem and the name issues in general. The SSA staff person was correct. If you continue trying to use a culturally-enhanced hyphenated name, which is basically a vanity affectation in this country, you will have problems. Open up your wallet and get a legal name change through your county court system, with your current first name (one node) a middle name of one node, and your husband's family name as your last name (one node).

When I got married, I kept my father's and my mother's last names (Llaverías Camilo) and combined them with "-Cuevas", my husband's. My Work Authorization card came yesterday with my whole name, but the rep at SSN office told me they cannot have it that way because of the limited number of characters they have on Last Name field, that is shorter than other agencies'. In that case, he told me my card will have "... Llaverias Camilo-Cuev" (missing two letters) and that it will cause me problems everywhere. Please, could someone tell me how to solve it and how long does it take? Thanks in advanced.

    I have a lengthy last name or rather 3 last names A B C.

    My passport, Visa, I-94 all have it recorded this way. SSN office couldn't accommodate the lengthy name and are asking to go for a I-94 correction. Is that a good idea ? If so what are the ways.

    Can't we have the truncated last name in SSN, would that pose a problem ?

    Pls advise.

    Hi Ananth,

    Iam facing same issue in how many days you got SSN .please help me

    There have to be SSA precedents for this kind of problem. I can't offer you a quick solution, other than to negotiate with the Social Security people, once the DHS verification has been don.e
