You mustn’t save it with bvn as the name, if you si much care about your security.

Next is for those that are having issues linking their bvn to their new bank account.

Have experienced this before and i want to show you how i solved it.

How to change your bvn name arrangement

Having issues with how your bvn name is arranged, and wants to update change or update it, follow this guide.

I don’t know if you have tried linking your bvn to your new account, and the bank telling you that it didn’t go through cause of the name arrangement.

For example you created account with zenith bank and enrolled for bvn using your zenith bank account, then it happens that the bank made a mistake and arranged your name another way round.

Like your Surname is Chukwu, First name is Tobe and last or last name is John.

The bank wrote Tobe as your surname, John as your first name and Chukwu as your last name.

If you create a new account with a new bank using your name as Chukwu Tobe John, linking your bvn account will not work.

The only way to resolve is to change your bvn name arrangement or ask your new bank to register your just like it is on the bvn.

But the problem is how do you know how your name is arranged on the bvn or even the bank making a mistake on spelling.

To check how your name is written on the bvn, either you visit the bank you enrolled the bvn and request that you want to know how your name is written, or you go through this page Bvn validator.

That bvn validator is approved by the central bank, it will show you how your name is written on your bvn. But it will cost you N25 to check it.

If you don’t want to spend that amount, go to your bank and inquire from them.

They will run a check and give you a feedback on how it is written. If it is not correct or there’s a misspelling, you need to change that quickly.

To change your bvn name arrangement or the name itself, go to the bank that you registered your bvn, request that you want to change your bvn name or the name arrangement.

You will be given a form to fill, complete and return it. Having done all the necessary things your bvn details will change within the space of one to seven days.

Please note you need to have your ID before going to change your bvn name or other details, failure to do that, the bank will not listen to you.
