Florida Credit Union customers need to attend a branch in person with updated photo ID and one of the following:
- Marriage certificate, or
- Divorce decree, or
- Court order
Update the SSA & DMV first
The first organizations updated should be the SSA, followed by the DMV. Attend a SSA location to file the name change form. We provide the SSA name change form and list what proof documents to take in your Easy Name Change kit.
Allow a few days for the name change to be visible to other agencies, then attend a DMV office in person. If your state has a form we include it in your kit.
Update financial accounts
Most banks and credit unions want to see updated photo ID before they change your account, so get these done soon after your photo ID.
The other 10 to 30 places….
Brace yourself for the long haul… each company is different so you’ll spend all day on hold figuring out what to do and complete all your paperwork. If you have better things to do then buy an Easy Name Change kit. You’ll get fully researched filing procedures for all your companies along with ready-to-send forms, letters and emails. Depending how many companies you need to update, expect to save between 5 and 10 hours.
