I don’t bank with UBA, but the information right here is based on the research i did using a friend sim number linked to UBA account. From there i gathered lots of information about the mobile code and how it works.
First let’s know what is UBA transfer code or Ussd code.
What is UBA Transfer Code
This is a Ussd code for mobile, used for quick or easy banking which includes money transfer, account opening, paying for bills etc. This can be done on a mobile phone or smartphone.
The Ussd code we are talking about is *919# which is the mobile banking code for United Bank for Africa.
Before you can start using the *919# Ussd code, you will first activate your sim number and thereby getting a four digit pin number which you will use for each transaction you did. To activate your number isn’t a difficult one at all, just follow the steps below.
How to Activate UBA Transfer Code(Getting the pin)
To activate UBA transfer code is the process of getting a pin number which you will use for each transaction. To get the pin,
- Dial *919#
- Scroll down and select option 7
- Type in 7 and select option 2 to register a new pin
- You will have to type in a four digit pin numbers of your choice.
Please note that banks usually change these options and methods. In the case that the above method is outdated, dial the *919# and scroll to where there is option to register or change pin. From there, you should follow up.
But note that i will always update this post with new updates or changes made.
How to transfer money on UBA
There are two ways of money transfer, one is UBA to UBA account, and the other is UBA to other bank account. The two have different Ussd code in transferring money. Let’s start with the first code which is how to send money from UBA to UBA account.
UBA to UBA Account
Dial *919# and select option 5 which is to send money. You will see choose payment method, which states;
- 1. UBA account
- 2. UBA prepaid card
Mostly, it is usually the first option which is UBA Account that you should select.
When you select your option, for unregistered user you will see the option to register your sim number, but if you’ve registered and gotten a pin number like i stated above, go ahead and continue.
Next is to type in the amount, followed by the recipient account number and your pin number to finalize the UBA money transfer. Please check the name you typed properly that it matched your recipient name, before clicking on the send button.
UBA to Other Account
To send money from uba to other bank, dial Dial *919*4# or *919*4*account number*amount#
Let’s say you want to send N60000 to chudi, you should dial *919*4*0023456886*60000#, next on the screen is to type in your four digit pin number and finally click on the send button.
NOTE When using the UBA transfer code to transfer money from your account to another account, please don’t be in too much haste to finalize it.
Properly check the name on your screen before clicking on the send button. I’ve seen someone who made a mistake by transferring money to a wrong person.
You should relax and type in the requirements but don’t waste too much time, else the transaction will be canceled.
The transfer limit for this is one hundred thousand(N100,000) per day. To transfer higher than this amount, go to uba and request for a token.
Apart from the Uba money transfer code, there other codes that are very helpful in terms of quick banking. Let’s start with airtime purchase.
How to buy airtime from uba
To buy airtime from your uba account to your number registered with the bank, dial *919*Amount# on your mobile phone.
To buy airtime from your uba account to another number or for others, dial *919* Phone number* Amount#
You want to buy N1000 airtime for Mike, dial *919*08022222222*1000#. The limit for airtime purchase is N5000 per day.
How to check uba account balance
Every transaction you made, your account balance will be displayed on your screen. But in the case that you urgently needed to check and know the amount left in the bank, then use the code below to do it.
To check uba account balance, dial *919*00# and your balance will display on your screen. You can as well dial *919# and select the option that states check account balance.
Note this attracts a fee of N15 per check, so please don’t over do it.
How to pay bills using uba
You can pay bills like electricity, dstv, Gotv, transportation booking from your uba account. To pay bills from your account, dial *919*5# and follow the on screen instruction.
Uba Cardless ATM Withdrawal
UBA cardless atm withdrawal is the process of withdrawing money from any uba atm without the use of the atm card. People are using it especially this year.
To use the cardless atm withdrawal, you will first dial the UBA transfer code, and select the option for it. Better still dial *919*30*Amount# and follow up.
I will give more insight on uba cardless withdrawal in my next post.
There are more features on the UBA ussd code, just dial the *919# and explore more.
The importance of uba ussd code
The importance of the UBA ussd is too many, i will only list the key ones.
- Gives users access to fast money transfer.
- Good mode of payment for business men and women.
- Reduces stress for its users like going to the bank or atm to transfer money, going to stores to buy airtime or make payment.
- It creates a cashless economy in a society.
The uba ussd transfer code doesn’t require internet connection, but you must have network access in your phone.
The only disadvantage of this is that if you find yourself in a remote area where there’s no network connectivity, sorry you can’t access the *919# code.
