Account Opening

Posted by: |

I am sharing my experience in setting up a Money Market Account at Merchants Bank of Indiana.

I attempted to complete the online application multiple times yesterday and was unable to get past the step where I entered my personal information. Finally, I received a popup saying to contact the bank.

This morning, I called the Carmel Midtown branch and spoke with Cathy. She suggested that I try completing the online application without specifying I wanted a joint account. This did not work, so I called her back and she sent me a secure message with profile forms to complete. We completed the profile forms and attached copies of our drivers’ licenses, and sent back via secure message.

Within a few hours, I received a call from Madison. Madison apologized for the misinformation I had received from the branch office, and explained that my application had not processed because of a problem with my license information. Also, that the application had to be completed online and that I must wait 48 hours before trying again. Madison had to put me on hold, but Jessica came on the phone to help me. It was agreed that I could call in two days and either Madison or Jessica would attempt to walk me through the online application.

After my conversation with Madison and Jessica, I sent an email to Cathy asking that she forward the information I had sent her to Madison and Jessica. I received a prompt email reply saying that she would take care of it.

I was set to wait two days to setup the account, but I got a voice mail from Cathy saying that Matt would be sending me emails that would provide a link to sign the account application using DocuSign. Shortly thereafter we received two emails from Matt, and my wife and I provided our electronic signatures.

I sent an email to Matt and he called me to confirm the account had been setup. On the same day I first called them.

While it would have been nice to just submit the online application and have the account setup, I was delighted to see that there were real people at Merchants Bank of Indiana that cared about helping me.

If I find out any additional information worth sharing as I get things setup, I will share in a future post.

Funding By WIRE ONLY!

On 06/17/22 CSR told me the only way to initially fund the 1.51% MM account is with a wire transfer. If you have to use this bank, I found that Fidelity doesn't charge for an outgoing wire.
