If you have a bank account with you which you use no more or if you don’t need it anymore. Then the best thing you can do is to close it. In this guide, I will tell you how you can close Anstaff Bank account.
The process is really simple but you have to prepare the account to be closed. In this process, there are two things that you have to care for.
The first thing is you have to check your account balance. And you have to make sure that there are no pending dues or negative balances in the account.
In case if you have any then you will have to clear those. This is important because the bank will not let you close the account until you clear all the dues.
The second thing is you have to move all your automatic payments and direct deposits to your alternative bank account.
If you don’t do this then all your payments and the deposits will start failing. And it is completely your responsibility to take care of your payments and deposits and not that of the bank.
