First Foundation (Banking) Name Change Procedure

Updating your name with First Florida Bank? There's a certain order to your name change, so follow the steps below:

  1. Get proof of your name change. If you are taking your spouse's surname you only need your marriage certificate. Show your divorce order if you are reverting to your former name. Changes for any other reason require a legal name change.
  2. At this stage you can buy an Easy Name Change kit (optional). You'll get step by step name change instructions from your choice of over 1,000 organizations plus any corresponding paperwork. In many cases you can just sign and send! 
  3. Send in the Social Security name change form. Wait to get confirmation that the SSA has updated your name.
  4. Attend your state DMV in person with your original proof of name change and evidence of your name being changed with the SSA.
  5. Attend any First Florida bank in person. Most financial institutions need you to go in person so they can sight your proof of name change and updated photo ID. Check books and bank plastic cards can be updated at the same time.
  6. Set aside 10 minutes to send off all other name change notifications: utilities, credit cards, insurance policies, rewards clubs, professional associations and more. These notifications come in all Easy Name Change kits, otherwise contact each organization directly to learn their process, look for forms and complete paperwork. Customers managing their own name change should set aside about 6 to 8 hours for all remaining changes.
