Switching Banks Has Never Been Easier

FirstSwitch®: Instructions

Now that you've opened a First Tennessee checking account, we can help you move your automatic credits and debits to your new account and notify your old bank.

Here's how it works:

  1. Hit Continue below and follow the step-by-step instructions.
  2. Once you've finished, simply print, sign and mail the documents, or bring them to any financial center.
  3. If you prefer filling out forms by hand, blank forms are available.

Before you start, here are some things you'll need to switch to First Tennessee:

  • The account and routing numbers of the account at your old bank, and of your First Tennessee account. You can find your account number and routing number on your checks.
  • The names and addresses of companies to which you want to make deposits or from which you want to initiate withdrawals.
  • Your account number with the merchants you set up for automatic payment.
  • A copy of Free Adobe Reader to view and print the forms created by the Switch Kit.
