SSA took about 97 minutes, but I should have my new card in the mail within 14 business days. Gender marker and name changed without issue or cost upon presentation of:

  • Passport in my former name (proof of citizenship, a birth certificate would have worked too)
  • Driver's license in my former name (proof of ID)
  • name change order (must show both names if above are in former name)
  • physician's affidavit ("appropriate clinical treatment", template available online)
