    some metrobank branches also ask for proof of billing, photo copy of the id's and a brgy. certificate. Such a hassle :(

    @ jc ycong I had the same concern last year. My previous employer issued my atm card. What I did was I informed my metrobank branch and the person in-charge for accounts converted account from an employer-based account to a personal account. I suggest you do the same thing.
