What is an inactive bank account?


An account is considered inactive if, after 12 months :

  • No transaction has been recorded on this account (not including interest and debit by the account holding institution, any fees and commissions or the payment of proceeds or redemption of capital or debt securities)

If the sums are blocked under the Act or any contractual provision, the 5-year term shall run from the expiration of the vesting period. The Act prescribes that an account deemed as inactive must be kept in the books of the bank for 10 years. After 10 years of inactivity, the bank shall close the account and transfer the deposits and assets to the Deposits and Consignments Fund (CDC), where they shall be kept for 20 years, and then be ultimately transferred to the State.

When an account is deemed inactive, the bank must inform the holder, or their legal representative or other authorised person known by the bank annually about this fact and its consequences.

Lastly, the bank must also inform them six (6) months before the deposits to the CDC.

  • Management on behalf of thrid parties ;
  • Financial investment consultancy.

In that respect, the Bank issues its orders for execution to four market traders, and it is thus subject to the best selection obligation in accordance with the general principle of furtherance of the customers’ interests.
