If you’re like most people, you’ve probably thought about changing banks many times. Maybe you’ve moved or changed jobs, or just tired of the way you were treated. You’ve got the reasons, but you haven’t switched. Why? Does it seem like a hassle? It really isn’t!
We have the solution and are here to help!
First Financial Northwest Bank’s Easy-Switch Kit has everything you need to make moving your checking account with any automatic payments or deposits a breeze. We’ve provided all the forms you might need with simple directions in a few easy steps.
We’ll even send them off for you - saving you even more time!
Stop in our lobby and visit with our Personal Banking Consultants, or go online to to open your account. When it is open, you’ll need to make a note of your account number and First Financial Northwest Bank’s routing number. They’ll come in handy later.
First Financial Northwest Bank’s Routing number is 325170877
Let all your checks or payments clear. This could take up to 10 days. To pass the time, we can help you destroy & shred any unused checks, ATM and debit cards and deposit slips.
Complete the Direct Deposit form(s) we have provided and give it to your employer, the Social Security Administration or your retirement plan. You may need to include a new deposit slip or voided check.
Use the forms we have provided 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.
Here’s the day you’ve been waiting for. Send the enclosed form to close your old account. No face-to-face confrontation needed. If, after all your checks have cleared, you have a remaining balance, your old bank will send closing payment. It’s as simple as that.
We want to help you through this process. If at any time you’d like our help, just bring in your paperwork, and we’ll help you complete every form, and even send them off for you.
That’s just a small part of the personalized service you’ll appreciate here at First Financial Northwest Bank!
