How to Switch to Forbright Bank

Follow these steps to help make the process straightforward.

1) Open a checking account with one of our bankers 

Come to one of our branches.  

2) Discontinue using your old account but keep it open. 

It can take up to two statement cycles for your outstanding checks and items to clear. In the meantime, turn off any automatic bill pay, destroy any unused checks, deposit slips, ATM cards and check cards. 

3) Switch your Direct Deposits, Automatic Transactions, and Bill Pay.  

Do you pay bills through online bill pay? Using a copy of your bill or the information from your previous financial institution, set up your bills to pay online. 

Do you have any recurring, automatic payments that were established using your check card? Simply contact your vendor and provide your new card number and expiration date. 

Do you have any incoming or outgoing ACH transactions? Provide the attached forms to the vendor to inform them of your new routing and account number. 

4) Close your old account.

Use our convenient form to authorize the closure of your old account. Verify that all your automatic transactions have been switched to your new account and any outstanding checks have cleared and have the remaining balance (if any) sent to you or to your new account at Forbright Bank.
