Can't threaten to send her back anymore...... Hui went and got her Citizenship this last week. She worked hard learning all the things we all forgot after the 8th grade.  


Now a few questions. Dose she have to update Social sec and the DMV?  She said SS ight want to keep her original citizenship papers I told her that this was most likely BS but I thought I would ask.

Don't have to update anything. Only time somebody needed citizenship paper was when applying for USA passport. They want the original and when finished they mail it back to you in a separate envelope from the passport.

"No" is correct - but a BETTER answer is "yes"


It can affect the benefits she is eligible for, such as SSDI or if you were to pass away and she were to return to China.


How do I update my Social Security record after I become a citizen?

Notice that they DO require original documents, but they are returned to you when you visit the office yourself.


SS serves as a national database for citizenship information - it is in your best interest to do so.

How long did the citizenship process take?


In my wife's case around 4 months.

See "Our Timeline" link in my signature block below.


However timing for Citizenship can vary depending on how busy your field office is.
