Open an account anywhere, anytime: LANDBANK Mobile App gets account-opening upgrade; usage up 96% in Q1 2024

Customers can now open a Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) savings account
completely online via smartphones, as the Bank continues to serve the growing preference
of customers for digital solutions and promote financial inclusion.

LANDBANK has upgraded its Mobile Banking App (MBA) with a new straight-through
account opening feature which allows customers to open a digital account instantly from
anywhere, at any time, without visiting a LANDBANK Branch.

Through the MBA, customers can open a LANDBANK PISO Plus basic deposit account, a
regular LANDBANK Visa debit account, and the new GoBayani savings account designed for
overseas Filipinos, to help build their savings and start their financial journey.

To open a LANDBANK account, interested clients need only their smartphones downloaded
with the latest version of the LANDBANK MBA, a secure internet connection, and any valid
identification card such as a Philippine Passport, Driver’s License, SSS, UMID, PRC ID, or
PhilSys ID.

“We are dedicated to continue expanding our digital offerings to bring more Filipinos into
the financial mainstream. Opening a LANDBANK account has never been easier, and we
hope more customers can get to experience the benefits of our convenient and secure
banking services” said LANDBANK President and CEO Lynette V. Ortiz.
The LANDBANK MBA is a free application that offers seamless and convenient online fund
transfers, bills payments, balance inquiries, and salary loan services.
Using the MBA, LANDBANK customers also enjoy free fund transfers to other banks via
InstaPay and PESONet for the first three transactions in a day worth P1,000 and below.
