Make the Easy Switch

Moving your accounts to Members First is easy! Here's how:

We know that it isn't always easy to move your existing accounts to another financial institution. That's why we have the Members First Switch Kit. Follow the steps below, print the entire kit (or only what you need) and follow up with the appropriate parties. If you have any questions, we're happy to help you navigate through the kit. Just give us a call!

Step 1 - Open a new membership account at Members First. You can stop into one of our branches, apply online or send us your application by mail or email. For more information on how to join, visit our How to Join page.

Step 2 - Set up your payroll direct deposit. Not only will you have the luxury of not visiting a branch office to cash your check, with our First Pay service, you may have access to your accounts up to two days before your co-workers!* Just print, complete, and give our Direct Deposit Enrollment form to your payroll supervisor.

Routing Number - Members First Credit Union's Routing Number is 211489407.

Step 3 - If you have any automatic payments coming from your current checking account, you will want to redirect those. Notify these organizations of your new account number and the routing number above.

We also have ACH forms that will help you set up any recurring transfers that you may want from other financial institutions:

ACH Debit Form - Set up a recurring transfer into your Members First account from another financial institution. Please Note: Transfers cannot be scheduled for the 31st of the month.

ACH Credit Form - Set up a recurring transfer from a Members First account into an account at another financial institution. Please Note: Transfers cannot be scheduled for the 31st of the month.

Step 4 - Sign up for Online Banking, Bill Payer, Mobile Banking, and e-Statements. This will help you keep track of your accounts electronically, from anywhere, at any time!

Step 5 - After ensuring that all checks and debit card transactions have cleared your old account, go ahead and close it out. If you haven't already, make sure that you've reviewed the Membership Agreement that you received when you opened your account with Members First.

Step 6 - Start enjoying all the perks of being a member at Members First!

The Fine Print
* To qualify for First Pay you must have direct deposit into your Members First Credit Union checking account and be a member in good standing. First Pay offers immediate credit of your direct deposit to your Members First account up to two (2) days early based upon when we receive your payroll from your employer or payroll company. As the deposit is based upon when we receive the funds, Members First cannot assume any liability for not depositing these funds to your account early. This offer is subject to change without notice.
