  5. Stop using your old checking account, but be sure to keep it open until all of your checks have cleared and your direct deposits and automatic payments have been changed. 
  6. Shred your old, unused deposit slips, checks, ATM and VISA check cards. Then balance your old account. Complete the Reconciliation Form and be sure to keep it for your records.

Complete the Direct Deposit /Automatic Payment Enrollment Form, using the account number and routing number you wrote down in Step 1, then mail it to the company or organization that issues the direct deposit.

Use this form to change any loan payments, membership dues, automatic investments, insurance payments, or any other payments that you currently pay through automatic payment from your checking account. Complete the Direct Deposit Automatic Payment Enrollment Form , using the account number and routing number you wrote down in Step 1, then mail it to the company that charges your account. Depending on when you send in the form, it may take two billing cycles for the change to be processed. 
  9. Close your old checking account. Once all in-process deposits or withdrawals and automatic payments/deposits have cleared your old checking account, complete the Account Closing Form Letter and mail it to your previous financial institution. Your former bank will send you a check for any remaining balance.
