5. Close your old account
Once payments have been cleared, visit your previous bank and close your old account. Be sure to give them your new account information, so they know where to send any balances. Since you opened an account, you’ll want to make sure your regularly occurring bill payments continue smoothly. You may like paying them using the bill pay function in True Blue Online®. Maybe you’ve set up an automatic debit of your account initiated by your utility company, etc.
