Metrobank Account Inactive (dormant) for 1 year: Will it be closed?

Let's say you have a Metrobank account: a Metrobank ATM card, Passbook or other types of account. And that you haven't use or transact on that account for a year. No deposit. No withdrawals. No transactions ever done in 1 year. In short, the account is dormant or inactive for 1 year. Will that account be closed?

No. A Metrobank account which is inactive for 1 year will not be closed. According to one of the Rules and Regulations governing Metrobank Savings Account, a Metrobank account is regarded as dormant if it's inactive (no transactions are performed) for 2 years. So if your account has no transactions in less than 2 years, it is still active. Meaning you can still use the account. The money is still intact.

On the other hand, if your account is inactive for 2 years, Metrobank will charge a corresponding dormancy fee, regardless of account balance. The dormancy fee will be automatically debited from the dormant savings account.

Therefore, to avoid dormancy fee, you should at least perform a transaction (deposit, withdraw, fund transfer, pay bills, etc.) to your Metrobank account?

Are you worried with your inactive Metrobank account?

I opened a metrobank account endorsed by company for my salary. After the contract of working in their company, i deposited money for my savings. My problem: Will my account have the said maintaining balance to follow or none? and also, Will it be close automatically because i haven't done any deposits? only checking my card in the atm if it still works.
