Switch your current account in 3 simple steps
You may want to switch your account because your fees are too high, you are unhappy with the service, or you’re an Ulster Bank or KBC customer and your bank is leaving the market.
If you decide to switch, we have made switching a simple 3 step process.
- If you are not a member, you will need to join us. To join, you must live, work or study within our common bond. Once you are a member, you must open a current account.
- Pick a date to switch – try and pick a quiet period where there is the least activity on your account.
- Fill out our switching form and we’ll take care of the rest. Make sure you notify anyone who lodges money into your account, that you have a new account (this includes employers, state payments, income from share dividends, etc).
Any active direct debits and standing orders will be switched to your new account, along with your account balance. If any service providers don’t accept the new direct debit instructions from Croí Laighean, we will guide you on how to do this.
