You can easily link your Bank Verification Number, BVN, to any Nigerian bank account…it’s not as difficult as you think.
But first, let’s see how you can easily link your BVN to your Standard Chartered Bank Account. The steps here are for those who got their BVN number from another bank. If you bank with different banks in Nigeria, it means you have to link them using your BVN number.
If you’ve lost or forgot your BVN, simply dial *565*0#. The 11-digit displayed on your phone screen is your BVN number.
You can link your BVN number to Standard Chartered Bank account in two ways:
- By contacting the 24-hour customer service centre
- By using the Standard Chartered Bank BVN linker form.
By contacting the 24-hour customer service centre
By contacting the customer service centre of the bank via +234 1 27046114 or by sending the following: First name, Middle Name, Last Name, Mobile number, Account number, Date of birth: day, month, year; Which bank you registered for BVN, Your 11-digit BVN number to firstname.lastname@example.org
You implement the linking process by yourself by visiting the official online banking platform of Standard Chartered bank.
