Select the checking account* that is best for you. The choice is yours. No matter which checking account you select they all provide you with:
Transfer your direct deposit (payroll, Social Security, pension, investment/brokerage, etc.) by downloading the form below or simply contacting your employer or the business/organization initiating the deposit. Provide them your new account number and TCU’s routing and transit number (271291826).
Note: Contacts you may need to switch your accounts:
Social Security Administration
Department of Veterans Affairs
Direct Deposit Form
Gather all relevant information regarding your existing accounts, such as automatic payments, outstanding checks, and pending payments. Ensure you leave enough money in the account to cover these items until you transition to your new TCU account. Don’t forget to include any monthly account fees that may be assessed.
Set up your automatic payments (utilities, insurance, etc.) with your new TCU account. It's easy to make online payments with your TCU debit card or use the Bill Pay feature in Online Banking. You can also download and complete our Automatic Payment form to provide businesses with your new account information. Allow enough time, at least 3-5 business days, for the transfer to take place to avoid a late payment.
Automatic Payment Form
Before you officially close your old account, you'll want to make sure all checks have cleared and any direct deposits or automatic payments are transitioned to your new TCU account. You can download and complete the form below and provide it to your prior financial institution to close your old account.
Note: Once your account is closed, it's a good idea to destroy unused checks, deposit slips, and ATM or debit cards.
