Closing Down Your Old Account
Be sure to leave your old accounts active long enough to allow outstanding checks and automatic withdrawals to clear. Leave enough money in place to cover these transactions. This process may take several weeks. Once you’re sure that the old accounts are inactive, you can ask your previous financial institution to send you the balance from that account. Then you can destroy your old checks, ATM/debit cards and deposit slips.

Making an Easy Change
We’ve developed the three form letters below to help make your change-over easier. Use the following forms to close your non-members choice accounts, change your Direct Deposit* and stop automatic withdrawals. If you need help completing any of them, just stop by one of the Members Choice branches or give us a call at (254) 776-7070 or (800) 283-5343
