Which funding option should I choose?

Transfer from another bank
This option allows you to transfer money from an existing account you own at another financial institution. This process may take 2-4 business days before your account is open.

Credit/Debit Card
If your Visa or Mastercard is sent to your home address (No P.O. Box addresses permitted) you may open your new account using your credit or debit card. A purchase (not a cash advance) will appear on your account.

Once you complete the application, you may either mail us a check to the address that is provided at the end of your application, or visit any local Community First Bank branch to make a deposit. A deposit must be made within 25 days for the account to remain open.

Direct Deposit
If you wish to set up automated payroll deductions to your new account, or if you would like to establish a recurring deposit, you may want to consider using direct deposit. This option will electronically deposit an amount you specify from your paycheck or bank account to your new Community First Bank account. Once you complete the application, we will provide you the routing and account numbers needed to set up direct deposit. Please use these numbers if you elect to have direct deposits initiated through payroll deduction (you will need to provide your employer with the amount you’d like to contribute through direct deposit).

Transfer from an account
An internal transfer is when you authorize Community First Bank to transfer your opening deposit from a deposit account you already own at Community First Bank. This transfer is processed immediately upon successful completion of this application however the funds may not be made available right away.
