When dealing with your finances, one of the things you may be considering getting a tighter grip on your money is closing a credit card account. If you are a Chase credit card holder and want to close your account, you can follow the steps outlined below. You can also contact Chase credit card customer support here for assistance.
There are four main ways to cancel your Chase credit card: Online, in person, via phone, and through the mail.
Closing your account online is the quickest method. When canceling your Chase credit card online, follow these steps:
If you live near a Chase bank, you can go to the nearest branch and close the account in person. Make sure you present your identification to the representative and advise you want to close your Chase credit card. If there is a balance on the card, you may need to pay it off that same day as well.
To close your Chase credit card via phone, contact customer support here and request credit card account closure. When you speak to the representative, make sure Chase reports to the credit bureaus that the account was closed at your request.
Yet another way of closing your Chase credit card account is via snail mail. On your Chase credit card statement, you will find an address for general correspondence. Mail a letter to Chase at that address requesting the account closure and request that they notify the major credit bureaus that the account was closed at the customer's request. Check with Chase customer service within the next two weeks to confirm that the letter was received and processed and that the account has been closed.
Remember, when closing any credit account, it can impact your credit score by decreasing the total amount of available credit (which can increase your credit usage ratio) and the average length of your credit history (especially if this is one of your older accounts). Also, any reward points you may have accrued are likely forfeited when the account is closed.
Closing your Chase credit card is easy using one of the ways outlined in this article. For more information or assistance, contact customer support here.
