Payment Account

We offer opening a payment account at a post office to make payments in an easy and secure way.

 

Having a payment account at a post office gives you the opportunity to easily carry out the following activities:

  • receive a salary, pension, benefits and other payments
  • make transactions to legal entities' and individuals' accounts in post offices and credit institutions both in Latvia and abroad.
  • deposit cash and withdraw it from your account
  • pay bills for rent, utilities and other services

 

 

Go to a post office, taking your passport or ID with you.

You can authorize another person to withdraw cash and make payments from your account.
To draw up an authorization letter, go to the post office, where your account has been opened, together with the person to be authorized, taking your passports or IDs and copies of these documents.

In accordance with the requirements of the laws and regulations, it is banks and financial institutions’ responsibility to aggregate the information about their clients on a regular basis. SJSC “Latvijas Pasts”, which maintains the postal settlement system (PSS), shall be regarded as a financial institution for the purposes of the said law.

On 29 February 2016, the amendments to the Law on the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing became effective thus changing the definition of a politically exposed person. Consequently, all banks and financial institutions are responsible for determining which clients and clients’ true beneficiaries are to be regarded as politically exposed persons.

Therefore we kindly request all PSS account holders to complete the client’s questionnaire! The client’s questionnaire can be completed in the post office at postal officer’s request or it can be downloaded here and after the completion should be submitted to the post office. In accordance with the requirements of the effective legislation, the said questionnaires shall be completed by 31 December 2016.

We confirm that SJSC “Latvijas Pasts” will ensure the confidentiality of data and non-disclosure of client’s secret pursuant to the effective legal norms.

For further information, please, consult the postal office employees or call the helpline 27008001, 67008001.
