Is my account info the same?

Yes, your account numbers, Username (Saver ID)/Customer Number and Password/Sign In PIN are exactly the same. Same goes for your Saver ID and any account nicknames. You don’t have to do a thing.

Are my external linked checking accounts affected?

No, any external accounts you currently have set up as links remain the same. And don’t worry about notifying your bank about the name change – we took care of it for you. Plus, the way you transfer cash is still as easy as always.

Did the routing number change?

Our routing number for your checking, savings,  business, personal loan and home equity accounts is the same: 031176110.

What's changed with my savings accounts?

The only thing that’s changed is a couple of names, but that’s it. Even the way you set up things like Automatic Savings Plans is exactly the same.

Has anything changed with my Electric Orange checking (now 360 Checking) and MONEY accounts?

Not much at all. The only thing that’s changed is that your Electric Orange account is now called 360 Checking, but that’s it. Yep, that means experiences like paying bills and moving money (by doing things like Person2Person Payments) are exactly the same.

Can I use a Capital One Bank branch to service my Capital One 360 account(s)?

No, you can’t drop into a Capital One branch for help (the nice bankers won’t be able to pull up your account), but call us at 1-888-464-0727 from 8 AM to 8 PM and we can help you out.
