SWITCH KIT

You’ve got plenty of reasons to switch banks.  Whether you’ve changed jobs, moved, or your bank didn’t appreciate your business.  Switching banks can be a big hassle.  We’d like to make switching to First National Bank & Trust, where we value you and are accessible and responsive to your banking needs, as easy as 1…2…. 3!

Our Checking Account Switch Kit includes everything you need to make moving your checking account to FNB&Trust easy and convenient!

  1. 5 Step Process
  2. Automatic Withdrawal and Direct Deposit Change Forms
  3. “Please Close My Account” Form

As we said, as easy as 1…2…. 3!

Making the Switch.  Five Simple Steps.

Step 1

Open your First National Bank & Trust account.

Stop by any one of our convenient locations in Atmore or Excel to open your account or apply online.  Make a note of your account number and First National Bank & Trust’s routing number of 062104520.  The routing number will always appear at the bottom of each check on the left hand side.

Step 2

Stop using your old account.

And let all your checks clear.  This could take up to 10 days or more.  In the meantime, destroy any unused checks, ATM and debit cards and deposit slips.

Step 3

Change direct deposits.

Fill out the enclosed form and give it to your employer, the Social Security Administration or your retirement plan.  Include a new deposit slip or voided check.

Step 4

Change automatic payments.

Use the enclosed form to change all automatic withdrawals or automated payment services.  Don’t forget about those that use your old debit card number, such as automatic payments made online.

Step 5

Close your old account.

Once all checks have cleared, send in the enclosed form to close your old account.  If, after all your checks have cleared, you have a remaining balance, your old bank will send you a check.  It’s as simple as that.
