Step 1 - Become a PCU Member
Apply online or stop into any Preferred Credit Union branch to open a new account. You’ll need your valid state issued ID with your current living address, along with $6 to start the membership.
Step 2 - Redirect Automated Payments
Use your most recent bank statement to gather any automatic payments you currently have being taken out. Allow time for any outstanding debits and/or payments to clear. It usually takes up to 10 business days for any outstanding transactions to clear.
Step 3 - Redirecting your Payroll, SS Check, and Etc.
Fill out the Direct Deposit Form and give it to your HR or payroll department, this form will have the information they will need to start sending your direct deposit to your new account. If you currently do not have direct deposit and it’s something that you are interested in doing with your Preferred Credit Union account fill the direct deposit form out and bring it into your HR or Payroll Department.
Step 4 - Account Closing Form
This Account Closure Form will let your old financial institution know that you would like to close your account. We suggest waiting one or two statement cycles to be certain all electronic payments have been moved to your new Preferred Credit Union account.
