The Steps to Better Financial Management
At MidWest America, we believe becoming a member should be a simple process. We have a series of steps that will make your switch from your existing financial institution to MidWest America simple. If you have questions along the way, feel free to contact us. Before getting started, let's determine whether you qualify for membership.
- Step 1
- Step 2
- Step 3
Step 1: Open your MidWest America account.
To get started now, you can either stop in at any of our branch locations or you can fill out, print, and mail the membership application. Application will need to be notarized to be processed. It only takes a $5 deposit! Before you can venture to Step 2, you need
to wait for your application to be processed.* Once you have your
account number from MidWest, you can proceed to Step 2!
* If you are signing up for a Reward Checking Account, two additional forms will need to be completed. Please print and sign the Reward Checking Account Disclosure as well as the Enroll for Online Banking form on our Applications & Forms page.
Step 2: Change your automatic withdrawals/deposits.
In order to help simplify this process, we have several forms that may assist you in your transition to MidWest America. The ACH Direct Deposit form will authorize your employer to initiate direct deposit/payroll deductions into your MidWest accounts. The ACH Credit Authorization form will allow you to pay other institution's loans from MidWest.
Step 3: Close your old accounts.
After you have completed Steps 1 and 2, it is time to wait for any outstanding transactions from your previous accounts. Some of these transactions may include checks that need to clear, any debit card transactions, or any automatic payments. After you have confirmed that there are no more transactions on these old accounts, you can close the accounts. We have provided an Official Notice to Close form that can be filled out and delivered to the institutions you are closing.
