The Simply Better Switch Kit

Our Simply Better Switch Kit makes it easy to benefit from all that ConnectOne Bank has to offer: High-tech products, personalized service and convenience. Make the Switch today!

1. Open your new ConnectOne Bank Checking Account:

You can open an account by visiting any of our branch locations.

2. Stop using your old account:

Just let all of your checks clear. Destroy any unused checks, ATM and debit cards and deposit slips.

3. Move your Direct Deposits to your new account:

Once your checking account is opened, you will want to change any direct deposits to your new account. Also, you'll need to inform companies who make direct deposits on your behalf to use the new account. You can use the Payroll Direct Deposit Authorization Form to notify these companies of the change. Print one form for each direct deposit, fill it out and send it to the company making your deposits.

Note: For social security direct deposits, changes may be made by calling Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213.

4. Move your Automatic Withdrawals to your New Account:

You will want to change any automatic payments that are being drafted from your old account. You will need to notify the companies making those drafts of the change in accounts.

Feel free to use the Automatic Payment/Deposit Switch Form to notify these companies of the change. Print a form for each company making an automatic payment/deposit. Fill it out and send it to the company making the payment/deposit.

5. Close your old account:

You can do this by sending a written notice to close your old checking account using the Account Closing Form.

If, after all your checks have cleared there is a balance that remains, your previous bank will send you a check for the remaining balance. The Simply Better™ Account Balance Worksheet is provided to easily assist you in calculating your balance.

6. New Account Conversion Check List:

To make the account switch process as easy as possible, your ConnectOne Switch kit includes a Convenient Check List to guide you though a simple and orderly process.

Of course, we're always here from Mon. - Fri. 7 am to 7 pm and Sat. 9 am to 1 pm to help put you in A Better Place. And, your ConnectOne Banking Professional is readily available to answer your questions and to make the switch process seamless. Just call us at 201-816-8900 with any questions about the Simply Better™ Switch Kit. We'll even come to your location to assist you in making the switch. What could be better?

By operation of federal law, beginning January 1, 2013, funds deposited in a noninterest-bearing transaction account (including an Interest on Lawyer Trust Account) no longer will receive unlimited deposit insurance coverage by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Beginning January 1, 2013, all of a depositor’s accounts at an insured depository institution, including all noninterest-bearing transaction accounts, will be insured by the FDIC up to the standard maximum deposit insurance amount ($250,000), for each deposit insurance ownership category.

For more information about FDIC insurance coverage of noninterest bearing transaction accounts, visit http://www.fdic.gov/index.html
