- Other direct deposits
Automatic withdrawals or payments:
- Mortgage Company
- Auto Company
- Utilities (i.e. electric, gas, phone, cable, etc.)
Direct Deposit: If you receive deposits other than payroll direct deposit such as retirement or Social Security payments, contact the depositor for specific instructions on changing these deposits to your new ABC Bank account.
C. Switch off your old account
Be sure and leave your old accounts open long enough to have all outstanding checks and automatic withdrawals clear. This process may take several weeks. Once you are sure the old account is inactive, ask your previous financial institution to send you the balance. Then you can destroy any old checks, ATM/Debit cards, and deposit slips. Contact one of our friendly account representatives for more information on switching to ABC Bank.
