Switch Kit

Experience the credit union difference

At Freedom Credit Union, we want you to experience the credit union difference with us. Our Switch Kit makes transferring accounts easy!

 The forms in our Switch Kit are editable using your computer and can be completed in one of two ways:

  • Type your answers directly into the forms on your computer, save them to your hard drive, then print them out to sign.


  • Print out the forms and fill them in by hand.

Below is a step-by-step guide to help you through the process.
