As long as you have the account# for the company you are paying, you’ll be fine. They will post the funds to your account. The Fiance and I have separate checks. We use them interchangeably to pay bills (for bills that are in his name or my name or both) and have never had an issue. Actually neither set of checks even lists our current address and we’ve never had any trouble.

If you are just hyphenating and not changing the name completely it probably would not be an issue. You could also get adress labels made up with your current name and address and put those on the check over your old info. If it’s the same info that the bank has on file it should not be an issue.

I’m hyphenating. I rarely write checks, I’m not ordering any new ones just because of my name change. Like others said, just write the account number on your check (a good idea anyway, even if your name is correct on your checks)!

when we moved, we just cross out the old address and put in the new and they take it. i’m assuming it would be the same thing. 😀
