For many people worldwide, the name printed on their cards doesn’t reflect who they truly are
Mastercard has revealed its intentions to bring the True Name card to Europe in 2020. That would allow people to reflect their preferred identity on their payment cards.
The report states that the name on the cards can be a source of sensitivity and embarrassment for the transgender and non-binary communities. What is more, the option to change their name results in a long and difficult legal process.
This way, the True Name card has been designed to change by allowing individuals to display their preferred name on their card.
Mastercard aims to have the True Name card available in Europe for as many countries as possible by the end of 2020.
