Step 1 – Open an APL FCU Account
You can open your new credit union account by stopping by any APL FCU branch, or by completing our online application. Once you have funded the account and have been given a membership number, you can stop using your old bank’s account.
Step 2 – Redirect Automatic Payments & Withdrawals
You can redirect all automatic payments and withdrawals using our simple forms. Fill out the Direct Deposit Form and submit it to your employer to have your paychecks deposited directly to your new APL FCU account. You can also send a copy of the Change Automatic Withdrawal Form to any vendor or merchant that debits your old account (mortgage/rent payments, utilities, investments, etc.)
Step 3 – Close Your Old Account
The final step is to send a Close Account Form to your old financial institution. Be sure that any scheduled automatic withdrawals have been made from this account, and that all vendors and merchants have been notified of your new APL FCU account.
Please fill out the electronic forms, save them to your computer, print them out and send them to the appropriate recipients.
