Why can't I update my name online?
Why has my address changed back to my previous address?
You cannot change your name online if:
- it has been verified with the Social Security Administration, or
- there is currently a child support enforcement remedy in place.
Contact your county child support worker to report a name change if you cannot update it on MCSO.
If you receive Public Assistance (Medical Assistance, Diversionary Work Program, Minnesota Family
Investment Program or Child Care Assistance), and you changed your address using the Update my profile
page, the new address you entered may change back to a previous address overnight. This occurs because
the public assistance agency has a different address for you. If you are receiving public assistance, you
must contact your county financial worker to report your new address. Once the financial worker changes
your address, MCSO will update your address automatically the following day.
I am not receiving my confirmation emails. How do I fix this?
The email account linked with your account may be incorrect. You can update your email address by using the My information tab.
