  • Open the app >> Navigate to Cards & Cheques >> Manage Cards >> Block (Choose account to block) >> Enter PIN/Token >> Block Card.

2. Transfer funds right away

If you have another bank account, why not transfer the fund from your bank (with a missing ATM) to another bank account that you own?

Don’t waste your time going to your bank branch to get your funds transferred, you can use the bank USSD method of transferring money, this is faster and less stressful.

3. Apply for a new Access bank ATM card

Apply for a new card as fast as possible, since you know how important the ATM card is. When you contact the bank to block the lost or missing ATM card, make sure you also apply for a new ATM card to carry out easy banking transactions afterwards. This can only be done by going to the nearest Access bank.

4. Unlink online banking information

Don’t forget to unlink your lost ATM card from all online payment system you’ve linked it with. This measure is important to ensure you have nothing to do with the old card while you await your new ATM.
