How to Close a Huntington Bank Account

Bank accounts are something basically all of us have, but that doesn't mean we'll keep them. For any number of reasons, there may come a time when you need to close an account for yourself or someone else. If you've found yourself in that position, learn the easy way with DoNotPay's guidance.

Why Would You Want to Close a Huntington Bank Account?

There are a few main reasons why you might want to . You probably have a reason already, but some of the more common ones are:

  • Relocating somewhere without a branch of your current bank.
  • Finding a new bank with better incentives.
  • Being displeased with your current bank's policies or behavior.
  • The account owner's death (you're closing the account on their behalf).
  • Your account has been frozen or is inaccessible and you no longer want to use it.

How Do I Close a Huntington Bank Account?

Closing a bank account is always a tedious process. While the steps to doing it aren't necessarily that complex, you can always expect to get some amount of needling from bank reps who don't want to lose you. If you don't want to deal with all of that or find these DIY methods too time-consuming, you always have DoNotPay to fall back on.

In-Person

  1. Gather documents like proof of identity, transaction records, death certificate (if necessary), and any other information to show your connection to the account.
  2. Go to the bank and request to close your account.
  3. Fill out the proper forms and present your documentation as requested.
  4. Select where to transfer any funds left in the account. If it's a low enough amount, they might give it to you in cash.
  5. Receive written confirmation that your account has been closed (keep it for your records).

By Mail

  1. Draft a formal letter to send to the bank. Include personal information like name, date of birth, account number, and more, along with documentation to prove it.
  2. Wait to receive a response. This can come anywhere from a few days to weeks later, and will usually request follow-up information. It may include a form to fill out asking where to send your funds after the account is closed.
  3. Send back what's been requested and wait for another response.
  4. If more information is needed, send it out.
  5. Wait to receive a written confirmation that your account has been closed.
