Step TwoChange your direct deposit to First Bank

Step ThreeLink accounts

Link your old and new accounts by logging into your First Bank account, then click “Payments and Transfers,” and then “Add External Account.”

Step FourStop using your old account

Monitor your old account to be sure to avoid any fees for dropping below any of the monthly account requirements. It may be helpful to also review the past few months (or year) of statements for recurring payments. Identify any lingering checks written from your old account, monitor their status and ensure they are all cleared before you close out the account.

Step FiveSwitch auto-drafts and online payments to your new account

Consider your cable or phone bill and accounts with sites like Amazon, Netflix, and Apple Pay. Make sure you update the info on each to your new First Bank debit card or account.

Step SixClose your old checking account (if applicable)

Withdraw any remaining money and follow the guidelines of the institution for closing your account.

Dream big, we’ll help you get there.
