Account Switching

Just click and switch. We've simplified account switching with ClickSwitch.

It's never been easier to switch!

With a personal account at Kindred, you can let ClickSWITCH® take care of moving your direct deposits and pre-authorized payments from another financial institution. In just a few minutes, ClickSWITCH helps you move all your direct deposits and recurring payments to your Kindred account. That means you can skip the task of filling out numerous forms and contacting all your payers and providers. Plus, it helps ensure you don’t miss any payments while you change your primary financial services provider. Simplify and use ClickSWITCH to consolidate all your daily banking to one financial institution!
