CBN Portal for Old Naira Cash Deposit: The Central Bank of Nigeria has set up a way for people who still have old naira bills to turn them in.
The portal was put on the banking regulator’s website a few days after banks started turning down the old bills.
Even though the Supreme Court moved the case about the legality of the February 10, 2023 deadline for the Naira Swap to February 22, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has opened a portal where people with old Naira notes can deposit them by filling out forms.
The Supreme Court put the case on hold until February 22, 2023. It also said that the old Naira notes are still legal until the next time it meets, which is next Wednesday.
In the meantime, examrunz.com learned that the Central Bank’s website now has a place where old Naira bills can be turned in.
On the portal, which can be found at cbn.gov.ng, depositors must enter their Bank Verification Number (BVN), phone number, email address, bank details, address, the amount and denominations to be deposited, and then a reference number is generated.
On Wednesday afternoon, a guideline for depositing the old N200, N500, and N1,000 banknotes went into effect. It will last until Friday, February 17.
Customers would need to have a filled-out online application form, a copy of a valid form of ID, and a filled-out teller to turn in their old bills at a CBN branch. Once the account is confirmed, the customer’s bank account would be credited with the same amount of cash.
On the portal, Https://crs.cbn.gov.ng depositors must enter their Bank Verification Number, phone number, email address, bank details, address, the amount to be deposited and the denominations to be deposited. After that, a reference number is generated.
With the reference number, the person who made the deposit could use the portal to find out how the deposit was going.
Give your bank your old N500 and N1000 notes.
Just do what’s written below:
• Go to the CBN website and sign up via the link:
• Go to the nearest bank branch with your reference number and cash.
• The most a customer can put down is N500,000 ( Based on your BVN).
NOTE: Banks are only open on Saturdays and Sundays if you need to deposit cash. Except for election weekends and public holidays.
