MECU's Easy Switching Guide
All you need to know to start banking at MECU right away
The MECU Easy Switching Guide tells you all you need to know to move your checking account from another financial institution to MECU. Before you begin, you should have already opened your MECU checking account. Note: Before you close your old account, be sure that all outstanding checks have cleared and all payees have been transferred to MECU.
After your new MECU checking account is opened:
Be sure to sign up for Direct Deposit. This will give you immediate access to your money as it's posted to your account.
- Your will need your MECU account number
- You will need MECU's routing number (252076468), which can also be found in the lower left hand corner of your MECU personal check
- You will need your employer's (or other depositor's) name and address
