Unionbank Philippines Launches A New Online Banking Web and Mobile Tool!

I was opening the Unionbank website today to pay my bills when I was greeted by an announcement saying that they are introducing the Unionbank Online, their new online and mobile banking tool. And yes this is different from their eBanking and uMobile services. The two are still existing though to serve you, at least for now. My hunch is that sooner or later, those two services will be shutdown to make way for this all-new service.

So let me pass on the news about this new tool. Here's 3 things you need to know.

1. Available in Mobile and Web

The new service is available to three platforms: Android, iOS, and Web
The apps can be downloaded from Google Play and App Store and the web version can be accessed via

2. You need to register again. 

Yes you do. The uMobile and eBanking username and password will not work. But don't worry, the sign up process is extremely easy and user friendly. Just follow the intuitive procedure.

3. The User Interface is super user friendly!

Large fonts, distinctive buttons and really mobile-centric design. This is in stark contrast with their eBanking service which can be really confusing. Here's a look of the web version.

And here's the iOS mobile app version. 

My Experience with Unionbank Philippines

I've been with Unionbank since 2007 because it's my employer's payroll account. So far, I appreciate how Unionbank uses technology to enhance their services. Unionbank is the first to allow transfer of money from Paypal to a deposit account.

Security-wise, I haven't heard of any incident where Unionbank customer data has been hacked or money was stolen.  They're quite good at this. In fact, they're the first that I know of among the local banks to employ a two-factor authentication in their online services. I'm talking about their requirement of a PIN and Transaction password to do online transactions. 

We'll in 2013, I personally experienced a glitch whereby my money was reduced by 75%, but that's a technical glitch rather than a breach. It gave me a little cringe but my money was restored to normal after a few hours.

My only complaint about Uniobnank is their domestic toll-free line. I'm living outside Manila so I have to call a long toll-free number. As if dialing is not a pain in itself, I remember hearing their auto-message and background music for as much as 30 minutes before an operator finally answered my call. That was a few years ago though. My recent calls to Unionbank has been a lot faster than that.

And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. friv game 2020 || kizi || abcya4

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store, and I would like to share the steps I took to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are for a BPI savings account, but generally, the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and most crucial step you need to do immediately is to contact your bank by phone or personally report it to the branch where you opened the account. This action will ensure that funds will stay put. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 889-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the loss. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for a Replacement of the Passbook It can mean a simple replacement of the lost passbook, but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes. 3. Get an Affidav

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast," wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information, this technique of adding contrast is known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a  Prostate MRI,  and I assume it was without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in  i-Scan Healthcare Inc.  here in Quezon City. The cost is  13000 Pesos . Please take note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
