The process of closing the account is easy. But there are a few things you should take care of. The first thing is there should be no negative balance in your account. If you have any pending dues or negative balance. Then the bank will not allow you to close the account until you clear everything.

The second thing is once the account is closed all your automatic payments and direct deposits will start failing. So to make sure everything is working fine you will have to cancel all the payments from your Berkshire Bank account. And set them up with your alternative bank account.

If you already have an account with another bank then that is fine. But in case if you don’t have. Then I highly recommend you open a new account. And once your new account with another bank is fully operational. You can close your existing account.
