What To Expect After You Switch

Congratulations, and welcome to the Bell family! We will always work hard to earn and keep your trust.


After you open your new Bell checking account:

  • Watch for your Bell debit card, arriving by mail within 7 to 10 business days (add an extra day for personalized debit cards).
  • Watch for your personalized checks, arriving by mail within 7 to 10 business days.
  • You'll receive a small set of "starter" checks to use until you receive your personalized checks. If you keep your "old" account open and funded for a period of time, you can also continue to use that account to make check or debit payments.
  • Plan to leave your "old" account open for 6 to 8 weeks. Monitor both your old and new accounts, so you can see when your direct deposits and automatic payments have moved to Bell.
