This is because banks not only PNC Bank but all the banks working globally don’t let the customers close the account without clearing the dues. So check the amount of balance you have in your account. And if you find any negative balance or dues then take proper steps to clear those.

Before you close down your existing bank account. You have to make sure that you have an alternative account with you. I am talking about another bank account that you might have with any other bank operating in the United States of America.

The alternative bank account is very important because once you request the PNC Bank to close your account. You can not use the same account for making any kind of transaction. So to make sure that you don’t lose access to the banking system you should have an alternative account with you.

If you already have an account with any bank then that is good. If you don’t have one then choose a good bank for you. And the account opened before you start the process of closing down. If you want help in choosing your new bank. Then read my list of 9 questions you should ask your new bank before opening the account.
