Tips to Use When Making a Bank Account Change

Follow the steps below to avoid missing or incorrect payments! If you’ve switched banks accounts and need to have your pay deposited to your new account, you can make the change online or by mail.
 
Either way, please use these two tips to avoid disruptions in your pay:
 
  1. Only close your old bank account AFTER you have received one monthly payment to your NEW account.
  2. Please allow 30 to 45 days for your change to be processed and your retired pay account to be updated with your new banking information.
