  5. Hello po Nors. Ask ko po kung yung CityState ay meron ba sa nueva ecija? Meron po ba sa Cabanatuan city?

  6. Hi, I badly need to open a checking account and i dont have any savings account in any bank. Alam nyo po ba kung anong specific branch ng citystate pwedeng mag open without having a savings account?

  7. Hi jennylyn, try mo nga yong branch nila sa Paco. Pero try mo pa rin the branch nearest you. Basta naman you’re able to show that you’re responsible, able to explain why you need a checking account, and how you’re going to fund your account.

  8. Pwede ko na poh bang magamit sa hospital ang Philheath ko kahit 1st quarter of this year 2014 lang ang nabayaran ko?Magpapa-opera po kasi ako this coming July or August 2014…

  9. Hi, Ms. Nora.. Magpapa-schedule na poh kasi ako ng confinement sa hospital this coming July or August para magpa-opera..Kaso poh 1st quarter lang ng year 2014 ang nabayaran koh..Hindi poh ako nakabayad ng contributions koh for this month of April to June 2014…Pano poh ba yun?Maa-avail koh pa rin poh ba yung benefits ng Philhealth?Pls. reply..Thanks!

  10. Hi Aileen, yes, you should be able to avail in July, following the 3-of-6-months rule. But some hospitals are sigurista. To be sure, if you’re near a Bayad Center or SM Business Center, pay Apr May June now, before they close today, since this is the last day you can pay the 2nd quarter.

  11. hello! may i ask if citystate bank still offer that amount in opening a checking account? Because i went to citystate bank las pinas branch and yet the teller said it is 5000 and should have a savings account for 6 months. So, i go with the philippine business bank 2000 with NO INTEREST. I must say “sayang!” because citystate bank offered as lowest as 1500 with INTEREST as you have said in your blog. have a good day:)

  12. Hi jo, sorry I’m not sure now, but some Citystate branches are stricter than other branches and certain branches are promoting the 5k checking account and de-emphasizing the cheaper account. I think that PBB 2k account is already good despite not giving interest, as deposit interest rates today have become negligible. Have a good day too

  13. Hi miss nora which branch of city state bank can i open quickly a checking account without waiting for 6 six months? Can you suggest other banks?

  14. Hi ella, try smaller savings banks. Try asking any savings bank that you pass by on your way to work. Not the bigger ones because they’re strict now. Try Optimum Bank at Starmall Alabang or Shaw/Edsa, or RCBC Savings Bank (Lite checking account).

  15. Hi i.would like to inquire if citystate bank here in baliuag allow to open a checking accoubt w/o 6mos requirements i need.it badly for my pag ibig loan thanks

  16. hi po can we open at citystate a checking account even without a savings account? at del monte branch?

  17. Hi mary faith, yes, you try applying. Bring your IDs. If they see that you’ll be able to maintain a checking account, they will grant you one. It might be easier if you apply for the account with 5,000 maintaining balance. Be ready to answer about your purpose in opening a checking account and your source of income.

  18. Hi! I badly need a checking account. I will be needing it for pagibig house loan. According to the CityState Savings on their website, only 1,500 is needed for maintaining and opening an account. Based on your own experience, in which branch is it easier to open? Do they require 6 months savings with them? Thank you for the reply.

  19. Hi Donato, it was easier before in Citystate’s Muntinlupa branch because it was newly opened then. But now they insist on offering the 5,000-peso maintaining account. Try the Paco branch. I know someone who opened an account there last year. Look at the list here of savings banks, then see what’s near your work or residence, then google their websites.
    About the 6-month savings-account requirement: this is not mandatory. Present yourself as someone who can handle a checking account. It also helps if you work in a good company or a stable source of income.

  20. Hi Nora,

    I need a checking account ASAP but most of the banks are 6 months before you could have a valid checking account. Can you help me? I need it for a housing loan with NHMFC. Any nearest branck to Marilao would be fine

  21. Hi Ariel, nakapag-down payment ka na ba sa NHMFC? Puede mong tanungin if they can give you a referral for opening a checking account. Usually mga big banks ang very strict in issuing checking accounts, so you try the smaller banks (savings banks and some rural banks). Kung ayaw sa isa, don’t get discouraged, punta ka sa susunod until you find one. Explain well why you need a checking account and that you are able to maintain your account and fund your checks.
