FAQ: Direct Debit

What if I change banks?

To make changes to your direct debit, please contact our office at least 5 days prior to the scheduled withdrawal. If the request to change the scheduled withdrawal is not received at least 5 days prior to the scheduled withdrawal, we may be unable to prevent the extraction of that payment. This may result in a returned check fee if your original bank is unable to honor the payment request.
