Before you approach the bank and request it to your account. There are a few things that you need to take care of. So let us learn about those two things. And then we will learn the step-by-step process that you need to get your account closed with the bank.
The first thing is you need to make sure that there is no negative balance in the account. Because if you have any pending dues or negative balance. The bank will not allow you to close the account until you pay and clear all the dues in the account.
The next thing is you need to take care of the payments you are making (automatic payments) and receiving (direct deposits) in your account. You will have to cancel those. Because the payments will start failing once the account is closed. So to keep the payments running you can move them to your alternative bank account.
