It’s easy to make the switch to Freedom Bank. Our printable switch kit (pdf) provides all the necessary forms required to open your new Freedom account and transfer your existing personal account(s), including automatic deposits/payments to Freedom Bank.
Simply follow these steps
Step 1 - Switch your direct deposit
Use the Direct Deposit Authorization Form to transfer direct deposits to your new Freedom Bank account. If you have regular direct deposits to your account (paycheck, Social Security funds, etc.) you will want to notify the company or organization that generates those transactions of the recent change to your account.
Step 2 - Automatic Payment Change
Notify any companies that make automatic payments (car payment, insurance, etc.) from your former account to make future debits from your new Freedom Bank account. Use the Payment Authorization Form to assist you in making a quick switch.
Step 3 - Close your former account
Use this form to provide notice and authorization to your former bank to close your account(s) and issue a check for the remaining balance(s). Please allow time for any outstanding checks, final direct deposits and/or automatic withdrawals to clear, before you close your account.
Simply print and fill out the forms included in the Switch Kit below and bring them in to a personal banker at your nearest Freedom Bank office. We’ll take care of the rest!
