Re: Keeping Swiss bank accounts after leaving

We have Credit Suisse and recently went in to a branch to ask about closing our account since we are moving back to the US. They initially said they would close it on our departure date since they can no longer send us mail. We thought this was a bit silly since (a) we never get any mail (everything is electronic) and (b) since we signed up for mail forwarding for a year. I think the critical argument though was that we wanted to keep our account open a bit longer so we could pay our remaining bills . In the end, they agreed to let us keep our account a month after we depart (no additional fees). We left them with our bank details for the US and they are supposed to transfer the remaining balance on the agreed upon date. Fingers crossed it all works out!
