If an applicant alleges never having requested the prior name change shown on the
latest Numident record request a microprint of the prior SS-5 to determine on what
basis the change was made. For instructions on how to request microprints of Form
SS-5s, see RM 10220.365.
NOTE: Generally, the cycle date (CYD) indicates that we processed the SS-5 before the implementation
of SSA’s legal name change policy on 12/17/2005.
