Legal Documents and PAPERWORK

Once you're married you'll get plenty of practice signing your name as there are many legal documents that need to be updated. Your Social Security Card is an important one, especially for income tax purposes. Here are some other documents that you should consider updating:

  • Your Employer
  • Financial Institutions
  • Medical Insurance
  • Driver's License
  • Credit Card Companies
  • Insurance Companies

This is also a good time to change your beneficiary information on retirement accounts and insurance policies and to make a will. If something unfortunate should happen to you or your spouse, it�s important that your savings and other assets go to the person you want it to go to. Many married couples overlook this aspect of their finances until it's too late.
