Do you need to know your access bank account number right away? Here are the top 4 ways you can do just that including using code.
What identifies a bank account? The answer to that question would be the account number before any other thing. Account number is what shows that there is such an account in such a bank.
It is a 10 digit number and every access bank customers must have it.
In making payments (mostly in international payments), the bank account name is not really required, so long as the bank account number is correct the money will be deposited in the right account.
Due to its importance, a lot of Nigerians tend to have their bank account numbers offhand so they can provide it immediately whenever it is required.
However, a lot of Nigerians have multiple bank accounts (some even up to and more than 10) and it is would not be very easy to memorize the 10 digits of all of them.
For this reason, there is a need for people to be able to check their bank account numbers.
If you bank with Access bank, there are various ways to check your bank account number and one of them is by using a USSD code. To find out what this code is and how to use it, read on.
Code To Check Access Bank Account Number
Dial *901*5# with your alertz number and enter your mobile ussd code authentication PIN. Wait for 1 or 2 seconds and your account number will be shown to you.
If you are dialing this code for the first time, you will be required to create a USSD PIN for the security of your account.
