In order to help simplify this process, you may utilize our ClickSWITCH service that assists in your transition to MidWest America. In just a few minutes, switch all of your direct deposits and recurring payments to your new or existing account at MidWest. This eliminates the hassle of having to contact each business and helps to ensure that you don’t miss a payment during your account transition.

If you prefer to not use ClickSWITCH, you may manually use our ACH Direct Deposit form to authorize your employer to initiate direct deposit/payroll deductions into your MidWest accounts and our ACH Credit Authorization form to allow you to pay other institution's loans from MidWest. You will also want to wait for any outstanding transactions from your previous accounts to settle. Some of these transactions may include checks that need to clear, any debit card transactions, or any automatic payments. After you have confirmed that there are no more transactions on these old accounts, you can close the accounts. An Official Notice to Close form that can be filled out and delivered to the institutions you are closing.
