Customers need to visit an Eastern National Bank location to get their name updated. Take original proof of name change, such as your marriage certificate, divorce decree or court order. You also need to show photo ID. Although not necessary, it is helpful to take any bank plastic ATM, credit or debit cards with you.
What records get changed first?
No matter what your reason for changing names you should always start by updating the name with the Social Security Administration, then the DMV. The SSA must be done first as all state DMVs will pull your name from the SSA and only issue identification in the same name. Financial records should then be done next. This includes banks, credit unions, credit cards, loans and mortgages. These organizations are more stringent and generally want to see updated photo ID as they need to be certain of your identity. This keeps your accounts safe and helps prevent identity theft.
