Penn Community Bank customers need to visit a bank location in-person to update the name on their accounts. Take any bank plastic cards with you, as well as your proof of name change (eg: original marriage certificate, divorce decree or court order) and photo ID.
No matter what your reason for changing names, there are always a small number of places you have to visit in person, including most banks and the DMV. That’s because these companies need to sight your original proof of name change and photo ID and want to witness your signature. While you can change names with the SSA by mail, most people prefer to go in person so that they don’t have to mail in original documents.
Once you’ve taken care of the SSA, photo ID and your bank, get an Easy Name Change kit to save hours of leg work with all your other companies. Our customers typically have between 8 and 40 different places to notify. It literally takes all day to contact each one, learn the process and complete forms, write letters and know what to send where. We take care of all this for you!
Simply choose which organizations you need to notify and receive a pack of personalized and ready to send name change forms, letters and emails. Attach the proof documents listed on each notification and send to the address provided! No need to research proof documents, postal addresses or emails! Expect to save 20 minutes per company. If you have 25 different companies, that’s a saving of over 8 hours!
