CHANGE OF NAME PACKET OF INFORMATION INCLUDED
CHANGING YOUR NAME ON A SOCIAL SECURITY CARD
Make sure you have original documents proving
  • U.S. citizenship
  • Legal Name Change
  • Identity
Fill out Social Security Card application once you arrive at Social Security
Office located at 222 W. 8th Ave, Anchorage, AK 99513 Room A11
Phone #: 907-271-4455
Hours: Monday-Friday 9am-3:30pm Except Federal Holidays
CHANGING YOU NAME ON A DRIVER’S LICENSE OR ID CARD
You can only initiate this change in person. Visit any DMV location with proof of your name change and an updated Social Security Card displaying your new name.




The DMV will accept the following as valid proof:
  • A Marriage Certificate
  • A certificate of dissolution, divorce, or annulment. This must be issued by the court and specifically state your new name
  • A certified copy of a court order changing your name
To obtain an updated license, you will also be required to pass a vision test and pay a $15 license duplication fee.


CHANGING YOUR NAME ON A VEHICLE TITLE & REGISTRATION
You must do this in person at any DMV location. Be sure to have your title with you. The DMV will treat your name change like a vehicle sale and require you to:


  • List your old name on the title as the seller
  • Insert your new name on the title as the buyer
  • Complete an Application for Title and Registration. An odometer reading is not required, but you will need to jot your name-change reason in the Affidavit section
  • Pay a $15 fee. You’ll also need to pay an additional $15 fee if there is a lien on the vehicle.
  • If your title is jointly owned and the word “and” is shown between the two names, both you and the other person will need to sign off on the title



When you make changes on your title, the DMV will automatically make the same changes on your registration certificate. You’ll receive the updated registration certificate with your new title.
CHANGING YOUR NAME ON YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE
Alaska is only able to process births that occurred in Alaska. If born out of the state you must contact the Bureau of Vital Statistics for that location.
Make sure you have your Change of Name official document from the court and a valid piece of identification such as a Drivers License or Passport
Walk into one of the following locations and fill out a request form. You will be charged $25 for the first copy of a certificate. Any additional copies requested are $20 a piece.
