The switch kit includes everything you may need to make your transition as seamless as possible.

How do you find your Account Number? You may remember when you first opened your account receiving a welcome letter that looks something like this: Sample Welcome Letter . If you no longer have a copy of your welcome letter don’t worry, there’s another way way to find your account number. Login to online banking and hover over the Secure Forms tab, select the option labeled Direct Deposit/ACH, this form has everything you need to get started with Direct Deposit.
Once you have your Direct Deposit information you’ll need to provide this to your employer, if you work directly for the Department of the Interior you can visit www.employeeexpress.gov to get started, for all other members please consult with your employer.

For any specific payment related questions please consult your billing provider for further information.
Your transition from your old bank or credit union account to Interior Federal Credit Union is nearly complete!
