Republic Bank Launches True Name™ Feature with Mastercard
True Name will enable transgender and non-binary people to put their chosen name on their debit cards
Republic Bank is the first community bank to launch a new feature that will help ensure an authentic banking experience for transgender and non-binary customers by enabling the use of their chosen name on their debit cards.
Through a partnership with Mastercard, Republic’s eligible business and personal banking customers will be able to use their self-identified chosen first name on their debit cards without the requirement of a legal name change. The True Name™ feature will be available to customers starting June 1, to coincide with the kick-off of Pride month.
“We value diversity and inclusion and want our customers who identify as transgender and non-binary to see these values reflected in our actions and in the products and solutions we offer,” said Ashley Duncan, Vice President, Director of Inclusion & Diversity. “We know that one’s name and identity are important and providing our customers the opportunity to use their chosen names on their debit cards is a way to show we value them.”
