How to use USSD codes to perform bank transactions

  1. Input the bank’s USSD code into your phone’s dialer and hit the dial/call button
  2. Follow the prompt displayed on your phone’s display.
  3. If you’re using a bank’s USSD code for the first time, you’ll be asked to set up a PIN which you’ll use to approve/verify transactions. Some banks might require you to use the last 4 – 6 digits of your debit/ATM card as your security PIN.

Before you can use the USSD code of any Nigerian bank to perform transactions, you need to have an active account with that particular bank — except you’re trying to open a new account using the USSD code. Also, the number you’re dialing the code from must be associated with your account in the bank.

If you no longer use the number associated with your bank account, or you have misplaced the SIM card, you should contact your bank to change the phone number associated with your account. Alternatively, you can retrieve the SIM card from your network carrier.

And while USSD services are mostly free to use, some banks charge a fee in the range of 5 – 20 naira for every successful transaction/activity carried out using their USSD interface.
