  1. If I opened a bank account at Wells Fargo here in the US with my Social Security check, can I retrieve my funds in the Philippines. Do I have to open an account in the Phil as well??????

  2. Hi Johannes, if you have a Wells Fargo debit card (with Mastercard or Visa logo), you can withdraw at MC or Visa-linked machines here with a fee of 200 pesos or more per withdrawal. Wells Fargo also has an ExpressSend remittance service. But if you retire here, it’s better to open a Direct Deposit account with PNB California or New York (you can email or call them on how to open via mail) so you can get your SS money here monthly. PNB CA or NY can also help you open your Philippine-based account. BPI and BDO also have Direct Deposit accounts, but you must open them while you’re here.

  3. Can, I open wells fargo account? I am Filipino and living here in the Philippines. If so, what are the possible requirement? How to open?

  4. Hi Andy, sorry no. Wells Fargo need your US SSS no., a US address and your driver’s license or valid ID issued in the US. If you have an account with HSBC, they might be able to help you a US-based account.

  5. Hi Kris, yes, at any Wells Fargo, but there are certain branches that offer only either For Cash Pickup or For Deposit to Account, and not both. But most branches offer both options. You might like to explore XOOM — it’s what my US employer uses to send my salary.
