Other Information


What is a current account?


A current account is a type of bank account that is primarily used for making transactions such as deposits, withdrawals, and payments. Current accounts are typically used by individuals as well as businesses who need frequent access to their funds.



What is eStatement?


eStatement is a PDF version of your monthly account statement. You have the option to download it from CIMB Clicks or have it delivered to your email (Email Statement Delivery). 



What is the difference between a savings account and a current account?


A savings account generally offers a higher interest rate or profit rate, making it a preferred option if you’re looking to save and grow your funds. On the other hand, current accounts typically offer more transaction flexibility as it allows account holders to make frequent and large transactions and withdrawals. Current accounts also often come with other features such as an overdraft facility, or a chequebook facility, thus making them a more convenient option for day-to-day expenses.

  • Access to credit: Having a current account can make it easier for you to access credit, such as overdraft facilities, which can be useful in case of emergencies or unexpected expenses.
