Change Your Direct Deposit Information
To avoid any delays in getting paid, the first thing to do is notify your employer and anyone else who sends you money via direct deposit about your new account. You will need to provide your new credit union account number and the routing number of GCS
Credit Union—281076853. Be sure to specify whether the money is being paid into a checking account or savings account. As soon as the party making payment adjusts your information, your direct deposits should continue to flow as before.
Move Automatic Payments
If you have automatic payments coming out of your previous checking account, update that information so that the payments come out of your new account. GCS Bill Pay allows you to manage all of your bills online in a single location. You can also set up automatic withdrawals using your account and routing numbers or update your payment arrangements with your new debit card number.
Close Your Previous Accounts
Once all of your new deposits and payments are set up, you can close your old banking accounts. Before you make the transition, be sure all of your outstanding checks have cleared our old account and that all of your automatic transactions have been successfully updated with your new account information.
