Welcome. If you're ready to enjoy your banking experience, you're at the right place. Let us help you get started.
We’re pleased you're thinking about switching and want to enjoy the great service and friendly bankers at Premier Bank. You’ll always receive prompt, personal service, provided by knowledgeable bankers who will get to know you, and you them. We know changing banks can be a big decision, but it doesn't have to be a challenging one. With our easy switch site to guide you step-by-step through the move, you'll be settled in quickly. STEP 1: OPEN YOUR NEW ACCOUNT AT PREMIER BANK Below are some things to bring with you at your account opening appointment:
Driver's license or government issued photo identification.
Social Security Number
Don’t forget to leave enough funds in your old account to cover any outstanding checks or automatic payments. Our next steps will help you switch any automated payments and direct deposits to your new account.
STEP 2: TRANSFER DIRECT DEPOSITS AND AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS It’s a good idea to have a few recent bank statements available to review the automated transactions you need to move. Transfer direct deposits from your employer, retirement plan, interest payments or other source of income, such as Social Security.
Automatic Payments: You’ll need to switch automatic payments set up to charge your checking, savings, debit or credit card to your new Premier Bank account. We've compiled a list of typical payees to consider with links to their website or switch forms if available. Take into consideration any annual payments that you may have set up as a deduction, as well.
STEP 3: CLOSE YOUR OLD ACCOUNT Keep your finances simple. Close that old account, but before you do, make sure any pending checks have cleared. Once that happens, you can withdraw all remaining funds you have in the account and ask your previous financial institution to close the account.
