Washington Federal Bank entered into an agreement to purchase 23 Bank of America braches throughout Nevada and Arizona, including the local branch inside Ridley’s grocery store.
The transition will affect deposit accounts including checking, savings, IRA’s and CD’s that belong to consumers, small businesses and Merrill Edge customers according to a press release by Bank of America. Safety deposit boxes and some loans will also be transitioned over to Washington Federal.
Bank of America said that they will send out notices to those that will be affected by the transition through mail or email.
The press release recommends updating address changes or email changes on user accounts to make sure they receive notification.
Banking centers, debit and credit cards and online accounts will all work the same until the transition is completed, though the release does not say when that will be.
The Bank of America branch in Lincoln will also be a part of the transition.
For more information on the transition, Bank of America account holders can call 1-866-251-0233 to speak with an associate to answer questions.
