1. Open a NEW account with Madison County Federal Credit Union.
You can open an account online or in person. Begin opening your account online by accessing our online application here. In person, you can drop by any branch or download a printable version of our application below and have all your paperwork ready to go before you arrive. Please note, to complete the opening of your new account, you will need to submit a valid government-issued photo ID and social security number.
Once your new credit union account is opened, you’ll need to notify companies and financial institutions that make automatic withdrawals from your old account. These may include utility companies, telephone, cable, mortgage, auto insurance, life insurance and anyone else that you pay through automatic transfers. You also will need to notify any company that makes automatic deposits into your account, such as direct deposit through your employer.
We’ve included two downloadable forms to use to notify all parties of the switch. Check with the involved parties to make sure they will accept this form. Some parties may require you to fill out a form of their own.

Now that your automatic payments and deposits are transferred, you can close your old account. Be sure to leave your accounts open long enough for outstanding checks and withdrawals to clear. This may take several weeks. Included in this Switch Kit is a form to help you close your old account.
