Need Assistance? We're Happy to Help!
Simply visit any RBC Bank location or call us at 1-877-RBC BANK (877-722-2265).
Here's How to Make the Switch:
Open an Account at RBC Bank
Visit any RBC Bank location to open your new checking or savings account. Our bankers can help you select the best banking options to meet your needs.
Ask your banker to write down the routing number and your new checking account number. You will need this information to change your automatic payments and direct deposits from your old accounts to your new RBC Bank account.
Switch Your Direct Deposit(s)
Complete the Direct Deposit Change Notice & Authorization form located in the RBC Bank Switch Assist package to redirect your current direct deposit(s) to your new account. If your direct deposit comes from the U.S. government, the Government Agency Direct Deposit sign-up form should be completed.
Common sources of direct deposit include your regular salary from employment, social security benefits or military disbursements, dividend payments, etc.
In many cases a copy of a voided check or deposit ticket is required to set-up a direct deposit.
Switch Your Automatic Payments
Our Automatic Payment Change Notice & Authorization form can assist you in establishing automated recurring payments or withdrawals to be debited from your new RBC Bank checking or savings account.
Common types of payments made through automatic draft are utility bills, membership dues, mortgage or car payments, and insurance payments.
Close Your Old Accounts
Once all your checks have cleared and your direct deposits and automatic payments have been successfully moved to RBC Bank, complete the Account Closing Request form to notify your old bank that you would like to close your account(s) and that you'd like all remaining funds sent to you.
