Request for Name Change


Please use this form to request a name change. Note that according to Section 27-7-17(B), Code of Alabama 1975, a licensee is required to notify the Department of Insurance of a legal change in name within 30 days of that change. For verification purposes, a legal name change for an individual is when the name is changed with the Social Security Administration. A legal name change for a business entity occurs when the proper filing is made with the proper authority in the entity’s state of organization. Failure to comply with this statute will result in a $50 penalty.

For individual licensees, this form must be accompanied by a copy of a social security card in the new name or the receipt from the Social Security Administration showing legal name change.

For business entities, this form must be accompanied by a new Certificate of Existence from the Alabama Secretary of State.
