My passport has the correct birth date information but a mistake was made on my driver’s license and other official papers.
Question: Hi, My name of Joy. I was born in China, migrate to the U.S. and became a U.S. citizen. My passport has the correct birth date information but a mistake was made on my driver’s license and other official papers like my social security card that I got using my driver license info. It was never a problem but recently I realize that for insurance reasons and especially Medicare eligibility the dates do matter. What can I do to get all the dates right?
Answer: If a mistake was made on some of your documentation, don’t worry. There are ways of dealing with it. You only need to change the documents that contain the incorrect information.
Therefore, do nothing to change your passport. It is correct.
For any other documents, you should go to the issuing agency such as your local Motor Vehicle Department or the Social Security Administration.
Here is your local motor vehicle department:
3665 Flora Vista Ave, Santa Clara, CA 95051
Also, here is the address of your local Social Security Office; US Social Security Administration, 770 W Hamilton Ave., Campbell, CA 95008
Please make a list of all the documents with a mistake. The correct information, address and telephone numbers are easily accessible on the internet these days. I suggest you always call to confirm information such as address and telephone number before you trek out to the office in case of any changes.
