RELEASED DATE 05 Oct 2021
From 1 October 2021, employees who are maintaining unemployment insurance as of 30 September 2021 and the ones who have reserved the period of maintaining unemployment insurance from 1 January 2020 to 30 September 2021 will be paid unemployment insurance following the Government’s Resolution No. 116/NQ-CP dated 24 September 2021 (on the policy to support employees and employers affected by the Covid-19 pandemic from the unemployment insurance fund).
Since the Covid-19 pandemic remains serious, Vietnam Social Security encourages benefit payment to employees via bank account. Employees should open individual accounts at banks to ensure timely, accurate and transparent payments.
Those who do not have a bank account can easily apply to open account at BIDV using eKYC without having to visit the counter for KYC as before.
To simplify the procedure and optimize the customer experience from the very first steps, with eKYC, you only need to take a photo of your identity document (Citizen Card/ID Card/Passport), take a picture of your face, then BIDV will check information validity and open an account for you immediately.
Please follow the below steps for opening account:
- Step 1: Download BIDV SmartBanking app, select “Register Online”.
- Step 2: Enter your phone number, take a photo of your Citizen Card/ID Card/Passport and follow the guidance.
- Step 3: Register account opening information, e-banking services and issue non-physical cards to withdraw money using QR code.
- Step 4: Receive account and banking services information. Then activate new accounts and immediately experience the new generation digital banking features of BIDV SmartBanking.
