How to change my address with Desjardins ?

Year after year, about 200,000 individuals in Quebec ask themselves the same question: How do I change my address with Desjardins? The question may seem simple, but the answer is not as easy… Do not worry! This article will help you get out of the Desjardins maze in one piece.

What you need to know !

The financial institution is subdivided into several independent departments that do not generally communicate with each other.  Therefore, as the services may be decentralized, it is important to update your contact information with the Desjardins departments with whom you do business. For example, as a Desjardins caisse member, making your change of address for your bank accounts will not automatically change the address for your credit cards, and even less for your home and auto insurance.

Here’s how to change your address online with the different Desjardins entities. Click on the department of your choice to be directed to the corresponding section in this article.

  1. Desjardins Caisse member
  2. Credit or prepaid cards
  3. Desjardins General Insurance
  4. The Personal Group Insurance
  5. Desjardins Financial Security
  6. Disnat

Disnat – Online Brokerage

As mentioned earlier, the complexity in the change of address process with Desjardins is the decentralization of its different departments. In other words, the departments within the financial institution do not all communicate profile updates with each other.

Disnat, however, is the exception to the rule! As a Desjardins Caisse member, by changing your address via AccèsD for your bank account, you will have the option to consent to an automatic update with your Disnat account. Congratulations on that one Desjardins!
