    How It Works

    Step 1: Open your new Citibank account.

    Step 2: Get organized.

    • Use the handy Organizer Form to identify all of your bill payments, transfers and deductions to/from your current account. This way, you can easily create an inventory of the transactions you'll need to switch to Citibank.
    • The convenient Balancing Your Account Form determines your current balance and how much you'll need to keep in your old account to cover outstanding expenses.

    Step 3: Set up your direct deposits.

    • The Direct Deposit Form is all you need to inform your employer that you want your paycheck deposited into your new Citibank account.
    • Receiving Social Security benefits? Quickly set up direct deposit of your checks into your new Citibank account by visiting To download the official government form for direct deposit for all other government benefits, go to
    • Use the Automatic Deposit Letter if you receive additional income (such as investment dividends or alimony) and want the funds deposited into your new Citibank account.

    Step 4: Set up bill payments.

    • Once you've opened your new account, simply sign on to and add your payees (the people and businesses you want to pay).
    • The Automatic Deductions Form notifies third parties authorized to deduct payments from your checking account (like your cable or cell phone provider) that you're switching banks.

    Step 5: Close your old account.

    • Lastly, our Account Closing Form will let your old bank know you're closing your account. Just be certain all outstanding transactions made against your old account have cleared first.
