Great Lakes Credit Union makes it easy to switch financial institutions.

Make sure you have access to the following:

  • Old paycheck-stub for reference
  • Driver’s License and SSN
  • Direct Deposit and Automatic Payment Information – including Bill Pay payees
  • Former financial institution account #’s and routing number

Next, follow these 3 EASY steps:

Step 1:
Open a GLCU Share Savings Account.

Step 2: Begin moving your existing electronic authorizations:

  • Redirect your payroll check and automatic deposits such as Social Security or dividend checks with this Direct Deposit form.
  • Redirect automatic bill payments or withdrawals which include recurring payments like utility bills, auto payments, insurance, etc., and
    any regularly scheduled transfers with this Automatic Payment Form.
  • Gather payee information from current online Bill Pay service to establish Bill Pay service through GLCU. Print a copy of existing payee screens as a reference tool.

Step 3: Close old accounts with this Account Closure Form once outstanding items have cleared your old accounts. Give this form to your former financial institution. We suggest waiting one or two statement cycles to be certain all electronic payments have been moved to your new GLCU account.

It’s that EASY… this initial process takes approximately 30 minutes to complete depending on the amount of payments you need to redirect. If you prefer help, call (800) 982-7850, or visit any of our convenient Branch Locations and a representative will be more than happy to help you make the switch to GLCU today!
