You may want to close your Regions bank account for various reasons. Perhaps you’re preparing to relocate, and your new city lacks Regions. Perhaps you’re unhappy with your Regions bank’s customer service or believe the excessive fees. In any case, this blog will guide you through the process of closing a Regions bank account.
Make preparations a month ahead of time if you know you intend to close your bank account, this will allow you to create a new account. Once you’ve opened a new account, contact all organizations that have scheduled automatic payments and give them your new debit card number.
You won’t have to worry about your services being disrupted this way. Stop writing checks from the account you’ll be closing. Examine your bank statement to ensure that the checks you’ve written have cleared the account.
Regions Customer Support
You must contact Regions customer support to close your account. You can reach Regions Bank Customer Service at 1-800-734-4667 or by dialing the number on the back of your debit card.
You can also log into your Regions account by visiting Regions’ help page. Select “send a secure email” after you’ve logged in. This will allow you to transfer account information more securely, albeit keeping in mind that no electronic communication is completely secure.
You could also use Facebook and Twitter; both have customer support pages for Regions. Before transferring your account information through these platforms, think about the security of your data. However, they are available if this is your preferred method of communication.
Of course, a face-to-face conversation with a customer support person is one of the most secure ways of communication. Type your zip code into this link on the Regions Bank website to find the branch closest to you.
No matter what method of contact you use to close your account, be sure you receive written confirmation that the procedure has been completed.
