Returning home - Want to keep my SG bank account. Any issues?

Postby russch » Sun, 22 Jan 2017 2:27 pm

From what I gather, UOB will be perfectly happy for me to park some money in my account and just let it sit there (earning no interest :???: ).

Can anyone confirm same for me? Above and beyond changing my account address to my local out-of-country address, do banks generally need to know or have me do anything else? (For example, I'm curious if I can switch my cell # from SG to a USA phone number for One Time Authentication purposes, etc).

Thanks in advance!

I've kept Stan Chart and UOB bank accounts and credit cards without issue. Just inform them of your new address and phone numbers for two factor authentication using your phone.
