Helpful Hints When Switching Your Checking Account to The Merrimack:

  • If you are transferring your account from another financial institution, we recommend that you maintain accounts at both financial institutions until any automatic payments are complete and fully activated on the new account.

  • For specific information regarding the exact date an automatic payment transfer will become effective, we suggest that you contact the organization that generates the automatic payment.

  • Be sure to update any online bill payment service with your new account information.

  • The organizations that generate automatic payment OR direct deposit may require you to complete additional forms. Be sure to ask them.

  • If you are transferring to Merrimack 24 Online Banking and Bill Payment from another bill pay service, we suggest printing out all the information on your payees, including name, billing address, your account number, and payment amount (if recurring) so it will be easily available to enter into Merrimack 24 Online Bill Payment. Remember to discontinue any recurring payments on your previous service, and reestablish them with Merrimack 24.
