Transfer Funds to My Account

  1. What does this service do?

    This service allows you to transfer funds immediately between your own accounts. You can use this service to transfer funds:

    • Between your DBS/POSB Singapore Dollar, Multi-Currency Autosave (MCA) and Wealth Investment Multi Currency Settlement Accounts (MCSA)
    • Between your DBS Cashline and Credit or Charge Cards*

    The crediting account can be your personal, joint-alternate, joint-all account or Trust-Minor/First account in Singapore Dollar or Foreign Currency.

    The debiting account can be your personal/joint-alternate deposit account or MCSA in Singapore Dollar or Foreign Currency. Alternatively you can also use your DBS Credit or Charge card as the debiting account.

  2. Does the Cash Advance Fee still apply if I’m transferring to my own account?

    For funds transfer using Credit Card, there will be a Cash Advance Fee of 6% of the amount withdrawn (minimum charge of S$15) plus finance charge of 24% per annum (minimum charge of S$2.50) on the amount withdrawn, calculated on a daily basis from the date of withdrawal until receipt of full payment.

  3. Is there a maximum limit to the amount of funds I can transfer?

    For Singapore Dollar transactions, there is no maximum limit to the amount of funds you can transfer between your Singapore Dollar accounts. You can transfer up to the available balance in the 'From' account.
