Certain features and benefits will not transfer. As a deposit account holder, you will receive a separate mailing on March 26th that will outline the details of your new Horizon account. There will be no need for action on your part, unless of course you find another Horizon account that you believe better serves your needs. 

Based on your account profile, we've selected the account we believe is the best fit to replace your Salin Bank account. Take a look:

Direct Deposits: The direct deposits you have established for your accounts will continue as is with no action needed on your part.

Automatic Transfers: If you have recurring transfers of funds between your Salin Bank deposit accounts, these will continue. If you have automatic payment drafts coming directly from your checking account, these will remain unchanged as your account number will not change and the routing number will automatically transfer to Horizon. If you utilized online banking to initiate recurring transfers from a checking to a savings, these will not continue automatically and will need to be reestablished within Horizon's Online Banking.
