Al Hilal ATM cash withdrawals via Emirates ID
Abu Dhabi, February 18, 2014
Al Hilal Bank is set to allow its customers to use their Emirates ID cards to make ATM cash withdrawals.
The service, which will be ready within the year, is an outcome of the strategic partnership agreement signed by the bank and Emirates Identity Authority (EIDA) recently.
It will allow the bank to apply the advanced capabilities of the EIDA ID cards to all the services it provides at its branches across the UAE.
The information embedded in the ID is obtained via an e-Reader to simplify and speed up service delivery and enhance the ability to verify a client’s identity while protecting their personal interests.
Mohamed Jamil Berro, group CEO, said: “We were the first bank to co-operate with EIDA on the unique idea of using their card’s stored information to simplify and streamline the bank account opening process, which we successfully implemented in 2013.
“This time we will be the first bank to allow the use of Emirates IDs for ATM withdrawals.” - TradeArabia News Service
