What is a Request New Account Number?

Sending a Request New Account Number letter can help you increase your security and your privacy. Maybe a company uses your social security number as an account number, or maybe you just want to play it safe. A Request New Account Number letter can help you resolve the issue. 
Chances are you've had certain accounts for years. Having stagnant information can be dangerous, but a Request New Account Number letter can help improve safety. It can help to check with the company first; they might have their own process for account number changes in place, but even if they do you can still follow up with a formal letter. Identity theft is a big deal, and it's sometimes up to you to keep yourself safe. If a company uses sensitive information, like your social security number, as your account number it's easy for a criminal to figure out. Changing your old account numbers can help prevent fraud. Filing a Request New Account Number letter can help you get protected. 
Note: Prior to sending this letter, you may wish to call the company this letter will be directed to in order to check whether you will need to provide additional information. You can also use this letter to send written confirmation of your request.

When to use a Request New Account Number:

  • You'd like to change your account number.
  • You've already requested a change online, or on the phone, and want to follow up.
