Perhaps your bank offered perks and great customer service when you first opened your account, but now the experience is less than stellar.
When your bank is no longer providing you with what you need, it may be time to break up with your bank.
Switching banks doesn’t have to be complicated. You work hard for your money, and you shouldn’t have to work hard to move it.
FNNB Bank in Newton combines value, hometown service and local convenience you’ve been looking for – all to make banking easier for you! FNNB takes the hassle out of moving your checking account from your old bank with step-by-step instructions and simple forms to complete.
“Banking local is a great way to develop a relationship with people who are invested in the community and want to see its customers succeed,” said Rob Kahn, FNNB Bank President and CEO. “The more successful its customers are, the better it is for the community.”
When selecting a new bank, be sure they offer a wide range of customer service options, both in-person and over the phone with positive face-to-face interactions with the bank employees. A good bank should offer quick resolution of potential issues, like when your debit card is lost or stolen.
Your bank should also offer appealing features, like online account access, bill pay and a mobile app.
When you’ve decided to make the switch, there are a few key steps you will need to take to ensure a successful transition. Cancel any automatic payments from your old account, including any quarterly or bi-annual insurance payments.
Request a certified check from your old bank for the amount currently in your account. This can take up to three days. You can also request a wire transfer if you need the money immediately.
If you receive direct deposit from your employer, set up your new account. Use your new bank’s online tools to re-establish your automatic payments again. With funds in your new account and the transition complete, you can finish the switch by closing your old account.
