EZ Switch Kit

Tired of the costs of banking elsewhere, but think it's too difficult to make the change? The Greater Rome Bank Switch Kit is just for you.

Our Switch Kit includes everything you need to help you make a smooth transition to Greater Rome Bank. In just five easy steps, you can be on your way to enjoying all the benefits of a Greater Rome Bank account:

Step 1: Open a new account at Greater Rome Bank.

Visit any Greater Rome Bank Office or call us at 706-295-9300. Have the following items ready:

  • Your old bank account information
  • Details of your existing automatic payments
  • Details of your existing direct deposits
  • A valid driver's license and a secondary form of identification
  • An opening deposit of $25 or more

Step 2: Stop using your old account immediately.

Make sure you leave sufficient funds to cover any outstanding checks (usually for 10 business days) or automatic payments that may be charged to your account. You should also destroy any unused checks, deposit slips, and ATM or debit cards from your old account. If you bring them into any Greater Rome Bank Office, we'll be glad to shred them for you.

Step 3: Change all of your direct deposits.

Fill out the Direct Deposit Change Form and forward it to your employer or retirement plan to let them know you have switched banks. Be sure to include a voided check or deposit slip from your new Greater Rome account.

Step 4: Switch all of your automatic payments.

Use the Automatic Payment Cancellation Request to notify companies that your automatic payment withdrawals or payments will now come from your Greater Rome account. Be sure to include a voided check or deposit slip from your new Greater Rome account.

Step 5: Close your old account and enjoy your new one.

Once you have cleared all outstanding checks from your old account and transferred all automatic payments and debits to your new account, you can officially close your old account. Simply complete the Account Closure Form and mail it to your old bank to close your account. If you have a remaining balance after your outstanding checks have cleared, they will send you a check.
