Preparation for Chase Bank Account Closure
Please follow these instructions to prepare your Chase account to be closed.
Open Another Account
The funds from your Chase account need to be transferred to another account. If you don’t have an account other than your Chase account, you need to open it, before the closing of your Chase account.
Clear the Balance of your Chase Bank Account
The balance in your Chase account must be cleared. You can do this by transferring the balance to your bank outside of Chase. It is much safer to transfer your money to another bank account rather than carrying around and storing cash.
Check Subscriptions and Deposits
Transfer utility bills or car payments to another account. Make sure all subscriptions such as Netflix are not connected with your Chase account. Inform your employer of your account change in order for direct deposit to go to the correct account.
Clear Negative Balance and Fees
Any negative balance or unpaid fees should be cleared. Your credit score could get affected if these are not dealt with.
