Centrue Bank has always been a better banking option, offering you all of the financial services you need with the customer service you deserve. Switching to Centrue Bank is now easier than ever! Here are 4 simple steps for starting a new Centrue Bank relationship:

  • Step 1 - Open a new Centrue Bank checking account by visiting one of our 22 branches or Open an Account Online! Please view our locations page for full branch hours, directions and contact information, to reach a personal banker and schedule an appointment. 
  • Step 2 - Let us help you transfer any direct deposits specific to payroll, Social Security, dividends or any other payments that you have transferred into your account. Our friendly personal bankers will take care of the work for you.  Complete our Switch Kit Organizer, so we can handle the rest.    
  • Step 3 - Our personal bankers can also cancel auto/electronic payments that you have set up at your current bank. Use our Switch Kit Organizer to help track any items that need to be changed to your new Centrue account.  Please see any Customer Service Representative at your local branch for assistance.        
  • Step 4 - Close your former bank account to easily manage your finances with your new Centrue Bank account.  After all of your automatic transfers have processed to your new account and all transactions have cleared your old account, let us help you cancel the account with your former bank.  Use this simple account closing letter, that we’d be happy to send on your behalf.
