Switching your accounts is easy!
Our Pain-Free Switch Kit makes transferring your bank accounts simple. Just follow these steps to close your old accounts and transfer your balances to your new accounts at West Texas National Bank.
Closing Your Old Accounts
- Leave your old personal bank accounts open for at least 30 days, 60 days for business accounts, so any outstanding checks or direct deposits can clear.
- Leave a small amount of money in your old account to cover any outstanding checks or automatic payments, and to cover any service or maintenance fees. If your old account has a minimum balance requirement, you may want to leave enough money in the account to cover that minimum to avoid additional fees.
- Most banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions require your original signature to close your account. THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO GO TO YOUR OLD BANK AND CLOSE YOUR ACCOUNT(S) IN PERSON. Most banks have a correspondence center which will take your account closing request by mail. You can request a cashier's check or an official bank check.
- Destroy your old bank checks and cut up ATM and/or debit cards. You want to make sure you don't write a check or make any charges against your old account.
Opening Your New Accounts
Find out which account is right for you from our Personal Banking or Business Banking.
- If you have automatic debits, payments, or you pay your bills online, it's important for you to provide accurate, up-to-date account information for your service providers. We do not recommend you email your account information to your service providers or employers, but do call via telephone or fax, or mail your new bank account information to your service providers. For business accounts, you'll also want to contact your payroll service provider, merchant card services, or wire originators. You'll need to provide them with the name, account number, location, and routing number of your new account(s).
- Arrange for direct deposits to be sent to your new West Texas National Bank account. Just call, or complete a simple form to let your employer know that your direct deposits (such as your paycheck) should be routed to your West Texas National Bank account. It usually takes one full pay period for direct deposit changes to go into effect, so please verify your information to ensure that your first deposit is made correctly.
