I am looking for information from other institutions on your policy for changing account types. There are a few scenarios that have come up and we are looking for input as far as what other institutions require. In these scenarios, the product type code is changing, but the suffix remains the same. Our disclosures are the same for all deposit products, but rates and fees may vary based on product type. We understand new schedules and overdraft disclosures would be needed. Our Money Market accounts are classified as savings accounts.
1. Checking to Checking: If you have a member that wants to change from one checking product to another checking product, do you require entirely new account documentation including all new disclosures? Only a member signature? What do you re-disclose? If the change is a institution initiated change (such as discontinuing a checking product), what type of notification and disclosures are you providing to the member?
2. Savings to Saving: Same questions as number one.
3. Savings/Money Market to Checking: If you have a member that wants to change from a savings or money market account to a checking account, do you require entirely new documentation including disclosures? Only a member signature? What do you re-disclose?
4. Checking to Savings/Money Market: Same questions as number 3.
