- Open Your New StonehamBank Account
Explore our checking account options and open an account online, or visit one of our convenient branch locations and speak with a knowledgeable customer service representative.
- Update Your Direct Deposit
Anyone who electronically deposits funds into your account will need a copy of the Direct Deposit Authorization. Complete a copy for your employer, the Social Security Administration, your retirement plan coordinator and any other party automatically depositing funds into your account.
- Update Your Automatic Transfers and Payments
Do you have any monthly payments automatically debited from your checking account? Let each merchant know about your new account by sending them a copy of the Request to Change an Automatic Withdrawal Form. Also, remember to update any merchant posting recurring charges to your debit card with your new card number. Now is also a good time to print out a list of all the payees you have setup in your online banking bill pay profile. Leave enough funds in your old checking account to cover any outstanding checks that have not yet cleared.
- Close Your Old Account
Once any outstanding transactions have cleared your old account you can close it by sending your former bank a completed copy of the Request to Close Account Form. Simply complete the form and mail it to your old bank.
