How do I make a transfer from or to a savings account?
The regulations in force limit authorized transactions on savings accounts*.
You can only make transfers between savings* and current accounts if they’re held by the same account holder, at the same bank.
Example: Transferring money to your children’s savings accounts has to be done in two steps :
- First make a transfer from your current account to your child’s current account.
- Then transfer the money from their current account to their savings account.
