Thanks jsn! Strangely I was able to get a passport for myself with the stamped printout of my Social Security number, but was denied for the Real ID with the same document. Go figure!
We're still in the very early stages of planning the extended family trip, so we haven't decided on a cruise or...
Good point. We got our Social Security numbers for the first time in the mid 80s, along with our brother, so our numbers are all sequential. I was about 12 or 13.
I remember my dad taking us to the SSA office to apply, because he needed us to have Social Security numbers to file his tax...
They are strict! I was unable to get one myself last year, because I had a certified printout of my Social Security number from a local SSA office, vs the actual card. The office I had gone to when I lost my card would not reissue cards, only provide the stamped printout.
I read that the trip between Philly and D.C. takes 90 minutes-two hours. Is that true? If so, can I just say that I am envious??
I work in downtown Cleveland and live in a suburb roughly 18 miles away. My daily public transit commute takes me 90 minutes. It's a 25-35 minute drive, depending on...
A Google search took me to our county's probate court website. It says minor
name misspellings can be corrected by executing an affidavit of correction and a court appearance.
I'm surprised the SSA issued her card with the correct spelling rather than the misspelling on the birth certificate...
Thanks everyone for the replies. What a hassle. I wish our mother had just taken care of the correction when my sister was an infant.
We live in Ohio by the way. Her marriage certificate has the same spelling as her birth certificate.
My extended family is considering planning a group vacation to either a Caribbean resort or a cruise in the next year or so, which of course would entail everyone needing passports.
My youngest (adult, married) sister has never had a passport. Her first name is misspelled by one...
Yep, my family of 4 went on a Carnival cruise in 2016. Our airfare from Ohio to Florida cost MORE than the cruise! And that was even with flying Spirit. Plus the cost of a hotel room in Florida prior to the cruise.
Same here. I also get 15 vacation days a year, and have to save some for other uses. I normally only take one 3-4 night trip a year as well, due to a very limited travel budget. And having to pay to board my pets when I travel also.
That's a great idea, IF someone is retired or otherwise unemployed, has generous vacation time at work. And doesn't have pets or children to plan trips around. Many people are fortunate if they even get two weeks of paid vacation a year at work.
