We will be sharing with you the Access Bank USSD code for mobile banking and how to use it in a way designed to make banking hassle-free. Access Bank has become a big name in the banking sector after the “great” merger with the almighty Diamond Bank. Since Access Bank took over Diamond Bank, their functionality and capability were tested, and unsurprisingly Access Bank carried the weight. The database belonging to Diamond Bank was seamlessly merged with Access Bank, making it possible for the migrated Diamond Bank customers to enjoy Access Bank’s services. Access bank transfer code also works for Diamond Bank customers, so you don’t need to revise any other USSD code being a migrated Diamond Bank customer.
Note: This is a quick reminder that the Access banking or transfer code works from only the phone number associated with your Access Bank. If you lost your phone number attached to your account number, quickly head to any Access bank branch to have it updated – same for Migrated Diamond Bank customers.
Ensure you have also created your four digits code from the menu option when you dial – *901#.
