How to Switch Your Account(s):

Just print the forms below and follow these steps:

Step 1: Complete our New Account Information Form, so we will have what we need to open your account(s).

Step 2: Send a Direct Deposit Request Form to your employer and other sources, so your funds can be automatically deposited to your account. If you already have Direct Deposits going elsewhere, you can also use this form to switch them to your new account with us.

Step 3: Complete an Automatic Payment Cancellation Letter and send it to each of your creditors to switch any payments so they will come out of your new account with us.

Step 4: Use our Account Closing Letter to notify your other bank to close your account and give directions for the disbursement of any remaining funds. Make sure that all your checks have cleared BEFORE you close your old account.

 

Then stop by our lobby to visit with one of our New Account Representatives to present your current identification, sign the Signature Card and make a deposit so we can open your account. We can also answer any questions or assist with completing any of the above documents.
