Will the number change when I renew my passport with my new, married name?
(Bel Air, MD)
Question: I am recently married and have changed my name with social security. My passport expires in August, so I need to renew it now, and with my new name.
I am planning a trip to Europe for the spring- can i use my current passport number with my maiden name even though by April I will have a new passport?Answer:
Your new passport will have a new number in it. Since the passport will have both a new number and your new name in it, you should wait until your passport renewal application is processed before purchasing the tickets for your trip.
