Want to make the switch to DFCU Financial? We can help make it easy! 

Thanks for choosing DFCU Financial. We're dedicated to ensuring that your transition is a smooth one. Follow these easy steps to guide you through the process of switching your accounts to us. 

1.  Open your new DFCU Financial account.

Becoming a member of DFCU Financial is easy. Click on Open an Account to begin the process or visit one of our branch locations in Ann Arbor, Detroit, Grand Rapids or Lansing.

2.  Set up Direct Deposit.

Prepare to move your Direct Deposit to DFCU Financial. Confirm with your employer, government or other depositing agency the effective date of your first direct deposit to DFCU Financial before moving to the next step of changing your automatic payments.

3.  Change your automatic payments.

Use our convenient Checklist to identify your automatic payments. (It may be helpful to review a recent account statement.) Once you have identified these payments, you’ll need to contact each company to authorize the change. Don’t forget any automatic payments that may be connected to your debit card.

4.  Close your old account.

Be sure to leave your old account active long enough to allow outstanding checks and other transactions to clear. Contact your previous financial institution to close your accounts. Destroy any old or unused checks and ATM/Debit Cards.

5.  Enjoy Anywhere Banking.
