Fairwinds (Banking) Name Change Procedure
It's a good idea to update the name on your Fairwinds accounts as soon as you have photo ID in your new name. You may have problems when cashing checks in a name that is different from your account, so make bank accounts a priority. Fairwinds have a higher standard of proof to document your name change compared to most other companies. That’s because they hold your funds and provide credit, such as personal loans, mortgages and credit cards.
Customers should take the following documents in person to any Fairwinds branch;
- your original proof of name change (eg: marriage certificate, court order or divorce decree)
- updated photo ID (eg: state driving license or non-driver ID card, passport)
- proof of your name being changed with the SSA (eg: updated SSA card or mailed correspondence)
How do I get started?
No matter what your reason for changing names, update your name with the SSA first. We can provide the SSA name change form as part of your kit. The DMV will only allow a name change to match what is on file with the SSA, so wait for confirmation of your name change from the SSA then attend your state DMV to get your driver's licence updated.
Credit unions, banks and credit cards should be next. Most banks need to you to visit a branch, but some allow name change by mail. Next comes the time consuming part; updating all your other records. Our average customer has anywhere from 8 to 30 or more additional places to notify. You'll need to look for forms, write letters and send emails. They all go to different addresses and have different proof of name change requirements. It takes all day to do the research then do the paperwork. Easy Name Change cuts this down to 10 minutes. Simply select which organisations you need to notify and we provide personalized and ready to send forms, letters and emails along with detailed filing instructions.
