Switching has never been easier!

Step 1:

Open a Morris Bank Business Checking account.

See a Customer Service Representative at one of our 3 convenient locations. They will help determine what account (s) fits you best.

To make the process even faster, bring the following when you come to open your Morris Bank Checking account:

1. Personal Account Forms 1-2 (provided in this Switch Kit)

2. Required Documentation based on account type. (see Personal Account Form 1)

In order to determine the best account type for you, it would be helpful for you to bring your previous months’ bank statements.

Step 2:

Stop using your previous checking account.

Allow time for outstanding checks to clear. Destroy your ATM and/or Debit cards, any unused checks and deposit slips.

Step 3:

Transfer any Direct Deposits and Automated Payments to Morris Bank.

Notify anyone making direct deposit (s) or automatic drafts to your previous account of your new bank information. Use the Change Automatic Deposit and Payment Request forms provided to assist you in quickly making the switch. If you use bill pay at your former bank, be sure to print a list of your payees and payment details prior to closing your account.

Step 4:

Close your previous checking account.

Use the Account Closing Request form to close your previous checking account. We’ll notify your previous bank to close your account and forward your remaining balance to you.

If you have any questions during this process, we are always here to help at 478-272-5202. You can also visit any of our 3 locations or on the web at www.morrisstate.com
