Hi! Can I use my provincial address even if I am residing here in MM? I’d like to open an account here in QC but I will be using my provincial address. Is it possible?
Nope, they need your current address and billing statement of that current address.
evanwalt del corro says
May I verify what will happen if you have deposited money to your BPI Express teller then as you inquire for your balance the ATM states that the account holder is not enrolled? What happens to the amount that you have deposited? Thank you
What do you mean by that? The money didn’t credited to the account? If account number and account type is correct, check with bank’s customer service. Thank you.
Hello, can I use my nbi and police clearance for that valid id’s?
Nope. You need to have a primary valid ID, those are supporting IDs only. Thanks!
In Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu. They required TIN #. Unfortunately, I am unemployed person. Then, how will I open account now? wew.
Hello, I don’t have an SSS ID yet, but I have it’s E1 form and Philhealth ID. Are they valid for payroll account?
@Kristine Banks require government-issued IDs with your picture in it. It’s not enough that you have some documents with written things in it, they need these written things attached to a face. Thus, the ID pictures. But since you’re opening for a payroll account, from what I know, most companies are affiliated to certain bank branches in opening payroll accounts for their employees. You need your company’s form or request for opening an account with that particular bank branch. Make sure you know the name of the person who has custody of it from your company.
Can I change my PIN number?
Of course yes!
Marissa Roque says

Hi just wanna ask! I have bpi savings account and the required maintainting balance is 3k. What will happen if It goes lower than 3k? Ty
They will deduct a certain amount each month while your balance is below 3k. Not really sure how much is the deductions though. They will continue to deduct until it goes to 0 balance which will eventually close your account, assuming it stays below maintaining balance. Thanks!
Safe mo ba yung pera kahit hindi i withdraw sa atm card hindi po ba mababawasan yun?

Might be a new process Rhey. If it’s required, you need to provide that for that type of account or try other savings account they offer. 🙂
Can i open a passbook account with atm?
raymond paguirigan says

Michael Francis says
Hi sir. Question LNG po. Phil health card LNG po ako Meron na government issued id. Tpos, sss (pink form) ska tin paper form din po. Pwede na ba un as valid id’s? How about nib clearance?
Then another question po, kc ung manager’s check ko is from citibank, pwede ko ba un iencash using my BPi easy saver account ( once ngopen na po ako ng account; hndi ko alam na 200 pesos LNG pla mkkpgopen na, super baba compare Sa bdo)? 3 days ba ang processing pra maiencash ko ung manager’s check???
As far as I know, you cannot encash that cheque in BPI, you need to go the Citibank branch. BPI requires valid ID, so I cannot guarantee but you may try to bring those ID and see if they accept it. THank you!
I was able to encash Citibank’s managers check, by depositing it on my BPI express teller acct, but withdrawal after 3 days
Thanks for the update Geel. This will help other readers with the same concern. Cheers!
beth raon says

Hi tanong ko lang po. I have an online shop and I want my customers to send their money thru bpi. Magastos kasi kapag remittance like lbc and palawan. Ano po bang kunin ko na pwede makadeposit yung mga customers ko sa bpi. Savings acc po ba? Thank you ?
Yap, open any of the savings account and then enroll them online so you can check the balance real time via internet. You just need to provide the account number to your clients so they can deposit or transfer payments to you. 🙂
I’m applying for BPI EASY SAVER ACCOUNT that you only need a 200 peso to have the ATM but they said they don’t have the card how?
What do you mean how ghem? Do you mean ATM is not avaialable that time? They should accept the application and then advise you when you claim your atm card.
Hi! Share ko lang nag apply ako ng ATM card sa BPI nung monday. Dala ko is Passport and drivers license. Napaxerox ko na isa isa. 1×1 photo isa lang, about the billing statement hnd magkatugma ung billing address ko sa mga id kong dala. Inexplain ko naman na lumipat kami ng bahay. Pero dala ko lahat ng bills bka kasi sabihin e kinuha ko lng kung saan, ang kinuha nila ay ung bill ko sa PLDT. Syempre same month din dala kong bill. then ng fill up na ko ng form. Today Wednesday nakuha ko na agad ATM ko, ang bilis. pgtpos mabgay Atm inassist nila ako ulit pra sa PIN at naenroll nadin ako sa BPI online. pra mamonitor ko ung acct. ko. super bilis. basta valid lahat ng dala mo.
Thank you for the information Jennelyn. This is a good reminder to other new applicants, bring all necessary requirements to speed up your application and the process. 🙂
Mylene Uy says
The Homeowner’s Association to which I am one of the officers wanted to open a BPI savings account. May I know what are the requirements needed to open an account? Thanks.
Ms. Mylene, unfortunately this article is for personal savings account only. For cooperative or association account, please check with the nearest BPI. They might have other requirements too. Thanks!
Hi there. Ask ko lang po kung paano yung savings account na ipapasok sa stock market na may required deposit na at least 5k a month. I wish to open such account to gain more. Thanks
What do you mean savings account with stock market? You can open a stock market without savings account and vice versa.
Sorry, di ko kasi masyadong alam yung technicalities sa banking. Can you offer me something na mag iincur ng mas malaking interest aside from the basic savings account. Thanks po.
Almost all savings account in the PH gives low interest rate, around 0.025% p.a. You can try to have time deposits but it’s still low. If your goal is to grow your money, put them to investments like UITF, mutual fund and other investment vehicle. But of course, you need to have basic knowledge and information about them first. You can find basic and foundational guide on this blog. You may also read other filipino personal finance blog or better attend personal finance related seminars. Godbless!
hello, ask ko lang, ano bangbpi atm card and pedeng iapply para magamit sa dubai… thanks
ask ko lng po, may charge po pag deposit/remittance? at anu po mangyayari po pag hindi umabot sa Monthly Required Maintaining Balance ang account?
Deposit from BPI branches doesn’t have charge but remittances have charges and depends on the remittance center. Depending on the type of account, they will deduct certain amount if your balance fall under required maintaining balance. Thanks!
Mr., pag nag-18 years old na po ba, can I still use my jumpstart savings or can I have a easy savers account kahit wala akong proof of billing and I’m still 17 years old?

Nung foundation day kasi sa school namin may booth ang BPI na humihingi lang two 2×2 or 1×1 na picture and photocopy ng school ID namin. Nagagamit ko na yung atm ko at nakapagdeposit na din ako. And magkano pala minimum widthrawal? Thanks

Does online account expire? I have an online account but i’ve not used it for almost 2yrs. Now i have another account with bpi and i want to reuse my previous online account. Is it possible to retrieved it or should i create a new account instead? btw. The account enrolled on my online account is already inactive also for 2yrs.
BPI is the only one can verify if it’s active or not. Or maybe you can try to login or use forget password to see if you can still use your online account. Thanks!
mark cruz says
sorry, my question is off topic. just cant find where to ask. bpi line is also busy all the time.
I just applied savings account in BPI Ayala Center Cebu Branch. But why the teller said I can get my ATM card after 8 days? I thought I can get my card right away.
Hello Dizney, thanks for visiting the blog. It really depends on the branch. My personal experience was just few hours (Rosario Pasig). Some readers here telling it took them 2 days while other are 3 days. Thank you.
Bella Dee says
May I ask if it is possible if my partner and I can open a BPI joint account here in Saudi Arabia? What are the requirements? We are not married yet. We just want to open an account. Thank you
Not really sure Bella. As far as I know, you need to be in the bank physically to open an account. Thanks!

Hi! Just to clarify. Is it possible to enroll for the mean time in bpi easy saver and in the future i will transfer in bpi express teller? And can i use the bpi easy saver to pay the bill? Thank you!
Yyes Erici but easy saver is not convertible to another type of account. You may need to open a new one. Thanks!
I just opened my bpi savings account last Tuesday and they asked me to go back for the ATM card on Friday. If I can’t get the ATM card personally, can I just send someone to pick it up? Thanks.
Yes but you need to provide an authorization letter with your ID to your representative. THanks!
I used transfer to anyone to deposit to a savings account that starts with “0”‘s hence it was a 12 digit account number. The mobile app notified that savings account has only 10 digits, I removed the 2 “0”‘s at the beginning of the recipient account number. Is it still a valid savings account if I removed the two zeroes? will the recipient receive the deposit. Thanks in advance and good day!

I live in Canada. My father passed away and had a BPI account. What do I need to provide to get access to the account?
If it’s a personal account, you may need to provide identifications and other legal permits to properly claim the money. I’m also not sure if it’s subjected to estate tax since the owner already died. If it’s an ATM, you can just withdraw the money to any BPI atm machines. Thanks!
With regards to that, i think she should have to visit the depository branch to get the pin code of his father’s atm, if any.

*I have NBI/Police Clearance, Electrical/Water Billing (under my mom’s name) and 2 Valid IDs
So how do I open an account?
I open an atm debit card last march 30,2016..and i took the atm after 10 days..ang question ko po is how many days ko kailangang hulugan ng maintainance balance ang atm ko..magcoclose po b ang account ko pag hindi q nahulugan agad?
What type of acct? Most of the time, the initial deposit should cover the maintaining balance. If not, make sure you have maintain the required balance of the account to avoid charges. Thanks!
Hi! My question might have been already asked, and missed it. Anyway, if I apply for an Express Teller account, do I really have to deposit 3k right on? You have mentioned that is the required maintaining balance. Thank you!
