What is ClickSWITCH?
As a Member, switching over to Meridian is easy when you can automatically transfer your online bill payments, automated payments, and direct deposits to us for free. With our ClickSWITCH service, you can do all this at your local branch. We can even initiate the closure of your other financial institution accounts if you so choose.
You can transfer your direct deposits online through a completely secure and fully automated process. Forget the inconvenience of filling out manual forms. As a Member, just sign into Online Banking to switch your employer payroll, insurance and benefit claims, investment dividends and much more. You can find ClickSWITCH in Settings and select “Add a Direct Depositor” to get started.
It’s the fastest and safest way to switch your direct depositor information to Meridian. Avoid the hassle of doing it manually yourself. Submit your request online and we’ll handle the rest working directly with your depositor.
Pick from a large range of eligible depositors, and choose a specific Meridian account to deposit into. Add as many depositors as you like, and manage your existing depositors from our Online Banking platform.
The better question is… why wouldn’t you ClickSWITCH?
Simply login to your Meridian account here and click “Settings” on the top right hand corner and “Add a Direct Depositor” to get started.
Employer payroll, insurance and benefit claims, investment dividends and much more. CRA can be done fastest by calling the CRA directly at 1-800-959-8281.
Any of our chequing or non-registered savings accounts. If you don’t have one currently, it’s easy to sign up for one online!
The name of your depositor, account details, and maybe their phone number and address. A previous account statement of the depositor should have all the information you need to get started!
Not all depositors are eligible or can be found online. In these cases, we’ll provide you a link to our direct deposit form which you can fill out and submit to your depositor directly to complete the switch. However, the majority of depositors should be in our database and new ones are being added every day.
No, but if you are looking for the fastest and most reliable way to get money deposited into any of your Meridian accounts, we highly recommend it!
