How To Register Nominee Online in SBI?

Nomination allows a bank account holder to choose someone in event of untimely death to claim the contents of the account. The appointment of all kinds of deposit accounts is authorised at the State Bank of India and can only be made on behalf of a single individual.

State Bank of India (SBI) customers are able to digitally select a nominee to their SBI account, thus they do not have to physically visit their local bank branches to enable the appointment procedure to be carried out.

SBI Nomination facility

As discussed above, SBI online banking and mobile banking can be used to quickly register a new nominee. However, there are a few things to keep in mind that SBI has made public on its website.

  • All bank accounts, articles in safe custody, and safe deposit vaults have the option of being nominated.
  • Accounts registered in an individual capacity (i.e. single/joint accounts as well as accounts of a sole proprietary concern) are eligible for nomination, but not accounts made in a representative capacity.
  • A nomination can only be made in one person’s favour. However, with jointly managed locker accounts with common approval, nominations in favour of more than one person, i.e. up to two individuals, are permitted.
  • The account holder can initiate, cancel, or change his or her nomination anytime during his or her existence. A witness is necessary when making a nomination, cancellation, or adjustment, and the request must be acknowledged by all account holders.
  • A nomination can also be lodged on behalf of a minor. During the time when the minor is not of legal age, the legal guardian will receive the amount on behalf of the registered minor.
  • Account-holders who have not yet registered a nomination for an existing account can do so by filling out a form accessible at the bank branches.
  • Only after the death of the depositor in a single account or the death of all depositors in a joint account, a nominee have the right to receive payment from the bank. If they have not done so before, new and existing customers are allowed to use the nomination option.
  • If the depositor(s) do not want to make a nomination, the depositor(s) must indicate this on the account opening form with signature.
