Before you change names with Capital One, it’s recommended you first update the SSA and get photo ID:

  1. Get the SSA name change form from their website or request this in your Easy Name Change kit. While you can file by mail, we recommend filing in person so you don’t need to send original primary identification documents by mail. The SSA takes 2-3 days to have the change visible to other agencies, like the DMV.
  2. Next, attend your state DMV in person. Some states have special forms, or you may need to show additional identification documents to upgrade to REAL-ID. Choose your state DMV from our database and we’ll provide the form if your state has one, along with instructions on how to file, how you can make an appointment and what proof documents to take.
  3. Update all financial institutions. It’s important this is done soon after your photo ID is issued or you can have problems proving your identity when dealing with checks.
