Your Accounts to Poplar Grove State Bank
A community bank is always ready to help. Its easy to move your
existing account to Poplar Grove State Bank. Maybe you are new in
the area, or just need the convenience and comfort of a bank that
knows who you are. Whatever the reason, it only takes a few minutes
to get started.
We’ve taken the hassle out of making a change by listing
a few simple steps below. Don’t hesitate any longer! Our checklist
will guide you through the process of switching your current account
to a new account at PGSB.
- Choose one of our current checking
plans and open a new account. When you open your new account
you will receive a starter kit containing a register and a small
amount of temporary checks. At the bottom of the check take note
of the routing number and account number. The routing number for
Poplar Grove State Bank is 071922094,
and your six digit account number is immediately to the right.
- Be sure to check out PGSB Online
Internet Banking. Internet Banking gives you access to
your account any time of the day. Ready access to account information
and transaction history. You can also transfer funds and download
transactions to other PC software. Get the latest tools to help
you gain that financial edge.
- Before you close your old checking
account be sure all of your outstanding checks have been paid.
Also be sure that any automated deposits or withdrawals from your
account have been changed. Destroy your unused deposit slips,
checks, and ATM cards. We can securely dispose of the old checks
for you. Finally, balance your old account to be sure you have
accounted for all of your activity. We have a handy Reconciliation
Form should you need one to assist you.
- Direct Deposits. Complete
our Direct Deposit Authorization Form to start having your deposits
come directly to your PGSB checking account. Fill out the form
and be sure to indicate your new PGSB account number. Then mail
it to the company or organization that issues the direct deposit.
You can also use this form anytime you want to set up a new direct
deposit to your accounts at PGSB.
For Social Security and VA benefits you can call directly to:
Social Security/SSI 1-800-772-1213 Veteran’s Benefits 1-800-827-1000
or online at: www.ssa.gov/deposit/howtosign.htm.
- Automated Withdrawals. Complete
our Direct Payment Authorization Form to notify each company of
the payment you wish to change. These can include but are not
limited to loan payments, membership dues, automatic investments,
insurance payments, or any other payments that you currently pay
through automatic payment from your checking account. Some companies
may require a voided check in addition to the form. Check with
them directly before sending your form. It may take several weeks
for the company to make the change so keep that in mind before
making any deposits.
- Close your old checking account only after
you are sure no other automated deposits or withdrawals are going
to be posted.
