How to switch

We all know what a hassle it can be trying to transfer all of your direct debits, direct credits and regular payments from one financial institution to another. So we've made it easy for you with these simple instructions.

You can switch your banking in four simple steps:

  Step 1. Become a Member

If you're not already a Member you will need to become one. Find out how to become a Member here. 

  Step 2. Identify your regular payments and payroll

One of the easiest ways to do this is to review your past statements and internet banking history. You can also ask your old financial institution to issue you with a list of regular payments list you’ve made over the past 13 months.

  Step 3. We will help you transfer your payments

Provide us with the list of your regular payments and we will help you complete the necessary documents and switch your banking arrangements for you.
Alternatively you can complete the following letters and send them directly to your current Financial Institution yourself, to switch your debits and credits to Northern Inland.

  Step 4. Close your old account

Once we have transferred all of your banking arrangements, you just need to close your old account - that's it!

Important Information:
We will act on your instructions only when once we receive the list and signed Notice of Variation of Account Details. Northern Inland is not responsible, nor has control over any delay, oversight and/or errors which may arise in processing the switching forms by the recipients (third parties) to update your direct debits and/or direct credits
