It is that simple!
Once we receive your request, we will always keep you updated of the progress, and the next steps are:
- You will receive an SMS or email (based on your preferences) to let you know that we have received your request
- We submit your request to each service provider and your employer and follow up with them until everything is switched. Companies that will not allow Absa to switch on your behalf
- There are some service providers or employers that need more information to switch – so within 48 hours we will send you an update on the status of this, and the next steps to follow to complete the switching process
- Within 2 weeks you will receive confirmation of the deduction date for all successfully switched debit orders
- If there are still any outstanding debit orders not switched, within 4 weeks, we will send you confirmation of the deduction date for all successfully switched debit orders
If there are any outstanding debit orders not switched within 6 weeks, we will contact you with an update and the next steps to be taken; but please don’t close your old account until all your debit orders and salary have been switched to ensure that your payments at these providers are always up to date.
