Switch Kit

Thank you for choosing Farmway Credit Union as your new financial partner! We are ready to serve you. We want to make it fast, easy and convenient for you to switch your accounts to the Credit Union.

Our switch kit includes everything you need to help you make a smooth transition. Simply follow these 5 simple steps to transition!

1. Open a Share/Passbook and Moneychek Account with Farmway Credit Union

You can do this at any FCU location or online.

2. Stop Using Your Old Account

Destroy any unused checks, deposit slips, ATM/Debit Cards. Let all of your outstanding checks clear. We recommend that you keep this account open for at least 30 days after switching to Farmway Credit Union to avoid accidentally bouncing any items (such as an outstanding check, automatic draft, debit card transaction, etc.).

3. Change Direct Deposits

If your paycheck is being automatically deposited (direct deposit) into another checking account, complete the Direct Deposit Form within the Switch Kit below and give it to your HR or Payroll Department. * If you are receiving deposits from the Social Security Administration or a retirement plan, contact those institutions.

4. Change Automatic Payments

Consult the Automatic Payment/Deposit Checklist within this Switch Kit to determine which companies you need to notify that you have switched your checking account to Farmway Credit Union. After notification, these companies should establish automatic payments from your new checking account. A member service representative will be happy to assist you redirect your automatic payments and direct deposits to your new Farmway Credit Union Moneychek account.

5. Close Your Old Checking Account

After all outstanding charges have cleared, close your old checking account. Other financial institutions may require you to do this in person. Be sure to get a check for any money left over in that account and deposit it into your new moneychek account with Farmway Credit Union.

*Your place of employment may require that you fill out their direct deposit form instead of the one provided by Farmway Credit Union. As you make the switch, Farmway Credit Union wants to ensure that you have not omitted any payments. As a suggestion, we recommend that you review your last three bank statements.
