If the name you provide differs from the name that appears in your identity documents, additional documentation is required on your Trusted Referee call.
In general, the following documents are needed:
- Your primary document must show your current name. Name change documents are not accepted. If you are verifying your identity for unemployment insurance and a primary document does not show your current name, please contact your state's workforce agency for next steps.
- Secondary documents may show your previous name. To document your name change, we accept certified copies or originals of the following:
- Marriage Certificate or Domestic Partnership document.
- Dissolution of Marriage document.
- Name-change document.
Name change documents are also unacceptable as proof of your Social Security number.
If your name has changed more than once, a separate name-change document is required for each event.
