You can choose ATM for easy access. In case your family members really needed cash/money. they can use the ATM to withdraw right away in any ATM (machines) with BancNet, MegaLink, and ExpressNet logos. Since it's a deposit account, it's insured with the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC)

You can send/remit money through the Metrobank foreign branch in Singapore indicated above. If you send/deposit money in foreign currency from Singapore, it will be converted into Philippine pesos in the Philippines, thus saving your loves ones or family members the hassle of having to change them into Philippine Pesos.

If you have no Metrobank OFW Peso Savings Account yet, you open one when you return here in the Philippines.

3.) Either you or your loves ones/family member can open a Metrobank World Cash Card. It has also no initial deposit and no maintaining balance. It's like an ATM where your love ones can withdraw money on any ATM (machines) with BancNet, Megalink and ExpressNet logos. But the downside is it doesn't earn interest. Take note: It is not a deposit account. It is not insured with the PDIC. 

You can send the money through Metrobank's foreign branch in Singapore. A maximum of Php 150,000 per month can be loaded/deposited to the account. It will become inactive if no financial transaction (remittance or withdrawal) in one year. Inactivity fee would cost Php 100 per month. Maximum withdrawable amount per day is Php 30,000.
