3. Switch your Direct Deposits to your new CenTrust account.
After your new account is opened, you will want to have all your direct deposits put into your new account. Contact any company that makes direct deposits on your behalf to direct them to use your new account. This could be your employer, Social Security Check, or other deposits.
For your Payroll, use the PAYROLL DIRECT DEPOSIT FORM. For all the other direct deposits you receive, fill out the DIRECT DEPOSIT AUTHORIZATION. Use one form for each of your direct deposits, sign it and mail it to the company.
Social Security Direct Deposits can be changed via toll free telephone: 1-800-772-1213 or online at http://www.ssa.gov/deposit/howtosign.htm

Now that your account is opened, you will want to move all of your automatic payments or withdrawals to your new account.

Fill one out for each recipient and send it to them.
