Name Change Request Letter

During certain major life events, such as a marriage, divorce, or adoption, a name change may occur and you'll need to notify various parties of this so that they can update their records.

If the letter is being sent as a hard copy, then it should be in the proper business format, otherwise, if the letter is being emailed, it should have an appropriate subject line and proper grammar.

How to Write
  1. Tell them why you need a name change.
  2. Tell them your old name and then what your new name is.
  3. Include proof of your name change e.g. a copy of your marriage certificate.

For your reference, my member number is A18543. I have enclosed a copy of my marriage certificate as proof of my name change.
