What are the Benefits of Linking BVN to Your Account?

The Apex bank in Nigeria CBN and the commercial banks in Nigeria came up with the BVN project, which came into being in February 2014 to do the following:

  • To provide additional security for bank account holders.
  • To ensure that account holders are known by their banker in what CBN calls, the “Know Your Customer (KYC)” principle.
  • To give a unified identity to account holders across all the banks in Nigeria, meaning the BVN code can be used as a means of identification in any bank in Nigeria.
  • To reduce fraud that may arise from impersonation.
  • To eliminate identity theft.
  • To increase the effectiveness of banking operations.
  • It is to give customers access to credit facilities.
  • To boost financial inclusion which the CBN has been committed to.
  • To resolve the problem of authentication.
  • To stop money laundering activities.
  • And to build confidence between banks and their customers.

This is the reason why the BVN is a “must-have” for any customer of the financial institutions in Nigeria.
