If you are ready to make the move to Shore United Bank, follow these simple steps to make your transition quick and easy:

  1. Open your new Shore United Bank account in any of our convenient branch locations. Use our New Account Information Checklist to be sure you have everything you need with you to open your new account.
  2. Sign up for Online Banking.
  3. Stop using your old account. Let all of your checks clear. Stop using any checks, ATM or debit cards, deposit slips, or Bill Pay from your old account. Use our Account Balance Worksheet to ensure you keep sufficient funds in your old account for all of your checks and payments to clear.
  4. Move your direct deposits to your new account. Use our Direct Deposit/Payroll Change Form to notify each company who makes direct deposits on your behalf to use your new account. Changes to Social Security direct deposits can be made by calling the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213.
  5. Move your automatic withdrawals to your new account. Use our Automatic Payment Change Form to notify each company making automatic debits from your old account of the change.
  6. Close your old account. When you’re sure all outstanding items have cleared your old account, use our Account Closing Form to send a written notice to your old banking institution to close your old account and request a check for any remaining balance. You can use our Account Balance Worksheet to calculate your remaining balance.
