Switch to RiverWood Bank
Moving Your Accounts is Easy!
Use the New Account Organizer as a reference tool
- Open your new account at any RiverWood Bank. When you open your new account at RiverWood Bank, you will be asked to complete a New Account Application form. Though forms are available at the Bank, you can expediate the New Account process by printing off and completing the New Account Application form prior to visiting the Bank. Then, simply present your completed form to a Personal Banker. (Click here for Locations of all RiverWood Bank Branches).
After you open your new RiverWood Bank account, as a reference to use for switching your accounts, record these numbers:
- Account Number
- Routing Number
- Stop using your existing checking account. Now that your new account is open, discontinue writing checks on your old account. Leave enough money in the old account to cover any outstanding checks, automatic payments, scheduled or recurring bill payments, or pending debit card transactions.
- Transfer your automatic deposits and withdrawals to your new account. Use the appropriate forms to request changes.
- Use the Direct Deposit Change Request form to switch your direct deposits to RiverWood Bank.
- Use the Direct Deposit - Federal Benefits Payments Sign-Up form to transfer Government Direct Deposits (social security, VA, disability) to RiverWood Bank.
- Use the Automatic Deposit Change Request form to transfer Other Automatic Direct Deposits (interest payments, pension income, dividends) to RiverWood Bank.
- Use the Automatic Payment Change Request form to transfer Automatic Payments, Transfers, or Withdrawals (monthly bills, premiums, payments, automatic debit card transactions) to RiverWood Bank.
- Transfer your online bill payments. Cancel any scheduled or recurring automatic bill payments. Print a copy of your existing payee list to use as a reference when setting up your payees in RiverWood Bank’s Online Bill Pay service.
