Switch Kit

 Make the switch to Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust in just four easy steps!

 

We want to make your move to Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust as easy as possible. That’s why we created this Switch Kit with everything you’ll need to close your existing accounts and transfer your automatic deposits and withdrawals. You won't even need to visit your old financial institution!

 

Step 1

Open Your Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust Account

We offer a number of account choices to meet your needs. Complete the account opening form (link below) and bring in to your nearest Farmers & Merchants Bank & Trust location. After your new account is open, stop using your old account.

Step 3

Change Your Automatic Payments

We offer online bill pay, however if you would like to transfer your existing payments with individual companies (like utilities, mortgage, credit card, etc...), use the 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 online.

Step 4

Close Your Old Accounts

We can help you fill in the blanks on this form and then you just sign it. This form will notify your old financial institutions about the account you are closing and gives directions for disbursement of any remaining funds in those accounts. You will need to know your old account numbers in order to close these accounts. You may want to destroy any unused checks, ATM cards and debit cards at this time.
