Mamed,Qqls Urged To Chancje SS Cards When you change your ad' dress, you wouldn't think of carrying the same old house key along after you have made the change. Yet, according to Jerome S. Blumberg, manager of the Williamsburg Social Security District Office, there are some married women who still carry the same old social security cards they had before they were wed. Some fail to make the changes, months, or even years, after they have changed their names from Miss to Mrs. The key to your social security record is your social security account number card. No one should have more than one social security number, yet it is possible to have more than one card under different names.! Blumberg pointed out that in the interest of having all earnings properly credited to the proper account number, the Social Security Administration needs to know about changes in names whether it be because of marriage, divorce or other reasons. Women who marry and fail to report this change may experience delay when it is time to figure the social security benefits due them. It really is a simple matter for a newly married woman to insure that her social security records are current and correct under the "proper name and number. Blumberg advised that if you can, it is best to bring your old social security card to 3 'x;5? ;.:-:-::-:-:-:'?:-:x:-:v:-:- A - i - ' - - VsN' A NURSE CAPPED Mrs. Robert Lohlein of 69.27 53rd street, Maspeth, a former Greenpoint resident, has been graduated from the School of Nursing at Kings County Hospital. ; Brodie Gets Veep Job At Green Allan G.
