Savings Accounts with Low Maintaining Balance Requirements

Updated February 3, 2018

You need to maintain a certain minimum amount in your bank account so that your bank will continue to manage your account. This certain minimum is called Maintaining Balance.

Maintaining Balance is also called Monthly Average Daily Balance (MADB).

If you fail to maintain your MADB for 2 consecutive months (dalawang magkasunod na buwan), your account will be deducted with 300 pesos to 500 pesos at the end of the second month. The deduction will continue from month to month until you are able to maintain your ADB for the month.

Common requirements in opening a bank savings account:

Two valid IDs
       - Some banks are satisfied with just 1 valid ID
         if it's a passport, unexpired driver's license, SSS or GSIS ID.
Two 1x1 ID pictures
       - Some banks require 2x2 ID pictures
Tax Identification Number (TIN)
        - TIN is needed because account owners pay tax on interests earned kahit super liit.
        - not required for students
Plus
Proof of home address
     (Some banks require this. If you have a Meralco, PLDT, Globe, Smart or other utility bill in your name, bring it in case it's required.)

For Students:
Latest School ID (with photo, signed by school head)
Birth Certificate

For In-Trust-For (ITF) Accounts (for kids who are not yet able to sign):
Birth certificate
School ID (with photo and school head's signature)
Parent needs to present valid ID

Remember, if your account is ATM-based, and you do not have a passbook,
most banks require you to withdraw only through the ATM.
You’ll pay a fee if you withdraw over the counter.
