Switch Kit

Looking to switch things up?

When you open a new account with us, you get much more than just a checking account. You get access to all our great services, friendly attention whenever you need it, and a $250 signing bonus1 to sweeten the deal. Just stop by a local branch to sign up.

We also make switching from your old bank super simple. So simple, you can do it in just four steps. That’s about as many steps as it takes to make a PB&J. So, after you take some time to chew it over, we’ll be here to help you make the switch smooth (not crunchy).


Open your shiny new checking account

You can do this online or in person—whatever floats your boat. You must go in person to get the $250 signing bonus*. Another bonus to opening your account in person is that our customer service representatives will help set you up with online and mobile banking, and get you a debit card on the spot, too! So you can just sit back and relax.


Change your direct deposits

What’s an account without some deposits? To set up direct deposit, just provide your employer, Social Security Administration, and/or your retirement plan provider with your account number and the Dedham Savings routing number: 211371722. Now we’re cooking.


Change your automatic withdrawals

Many companies and service providers let you make these changes online. If any of your providers currently use your debit card number for automatic withdrawals, just remember to provide your new card number once you have it.


Congrats, it’s time to close your old account!

That’s it! You did it. Welcome to the family! After verifying that all your checks have cleared, direct deposit is working, and your automatic debit payments have successfully been transferred to your new account, it’s time to let your former bank know that you want to close your account.

So. Ready to get started?
