Request Letter for Name Correction in Life Insurance Policy

Dear insurance company,

I am writing to you because I would like to request that you correct my name on my life insurance. I recently came into your office and sorted out my life insurance for my whole family. I was very happy with the service that you provided and especially the professionalism you showed when my husband got angry and verbally abusive.

However with this in mind I was very disappointed to see that one of the names was written wrong. My name is spelt Carly and on my life insurance certificate it is spelt like this Carley.  I hope that you can sort this out soon as I need this for some very important documents. I look forward to your reply.

Kind regards,

Mrs. Carly Rufus
