All you need to know about DORMANT account

In general, banks define dormant account (sometimes referred as inactive) when an account does not have any transaction (deposit or withdrawal) for a continuous period of at least 12 months. When your account becomes dormant, the bank would send you a notice letter to the registered mailing address to remind you to activate your account. You may be required to withdrawal or deposit some money over the counter to re-activate your account.

What are the charges?

In addition, should your account balances be RM10 or less, the bank would also inform you of its intention to close the account. The bank will send you a 2nd reminder when it does not receive any response from you (i.e. for activation of account or objection to the closure) within 3 months after the 1st notice. If there is still no response after 2 notices, the bank may proceed to close the account and absorb the balances as service fee.

For account with balances of more than RM10, the account will usually be charged with a dormant account service fee typically at RM10 per annum, until the balances are exhausted or up to 7 years whichever is earlier. Please refer to the tables below on fees and charges imposed by major banks in Malaysia on Saving account.




Unclaimed moneys
When your account remains dormant for a period of 7 years, the account will be classified as unclaimed moneys. Under the Unclaimed Moneys Act (1965), the balances will be transferred to the Government. You may recover your unclaimed moneys from the Registrar of Unclaimed Moneys by submitting form UMA-7 and the required supporting documents at any Registrar offices nationwide. There is no time limit for you to claim your money back.

Contact details of the Registrar are as follows:
