    We just got one.  My wife needed it for the SS office and the bank to change her ATM card.  Now it's sitting in the safe.  They're very quick on those so even if you need another one later couple days and you're done.  We ordered on a Friday and had it Tuesday.

    We ended up ordering two, just in case.  And since I'll have to mail mine out to get my passport changed, I'm glad that we'll have the extra if I need it for anything else.

    We ordered 2 as well. H needed 1 for the military and I also need 1 for name change and other stuff. But we ended up getting re-ordering, because the first time around we had it sent to H's ship and it was gone at the time(thanks to the quake in Japan), so we couldn't get to it. Long story short, we now have 4 copies! And I have yet to change my name still but I am working on it!

    We ordered two just to be safe, but so far no one has requested to keep one. They just look at it and give it back.

    We ordered 3.  My job wants one and I think I will need one for the passport change.  The third I will use to change credit cards, etc. and then into the safe.

    I guess I should get on this...I've been enjoying the non wedding planning lifestyle! Also slacking in the TY department...all written out I just need to get the pictures printed to add to them before mailing out. Maybe this weekend...

    Thanks, I only ordered one but will probably order one or two more now.

    Still don't know how my new name will be. Yikes!

    I plan on ordering 3 just to be safe and it will be a pain in the ass to order a replacement. I will keep one at home, one at the folks and one to send to places that need proof.

    We ordered 2 thinking at the very least, Social Security would keep one - but no one has requested to keep one...although, reading above - if I need to submit an official for my passport, glad I have 2!!

    I'm intrigued? what organisations would want to keep it?  In Australia, all i've had to do is flash it and they take a copy or provide a certified copy (for work, and a colleague could certify it).....Just seems strange to need more than one and if you lose it, it's on the public record and just as easy the as the first time to get a new one
