A customer’s account status is changed into “Dormant” and becomes inactive. “Dormant” account status is applicable at individual account level.
For example: If you have a single or multiple account(s) and there has been no transactions/contact for a period of three years, then the Customer and respective account(s) will be considered "Dormant”.
Examples on Non-financial transactions: Balance Inquiry via ATM, Successful login to Internet banking/Mobile banking, Authenticated calls to Contact Centre - PIN verified calls through Integrated Voice Recording (IVR).
Please note that, “Dormant” is a status which is applied to the accounts that meet the relevant criteria of no financial/non-financial transactions and no contact with the bank as explained above. Any other products, services including any joint accounts would not be impacted unless they become “Dormant” on their own.

When an account turns into “Dormant” status, access to these accounts will be restricted, including preventing withdrawal. Customer would need to contact the Bank and complete the Bank’s Identification and Verification (ID&V) processes in order to get the account status into “Active” before any transactions can be carried out, including balance inquiry.
Once the account status is changed into “Dormant” following a no financial/non-financial and no contact period of three calendar years, the accounts would be subject to a review by the Bank at the end of a further two-year period. At the end of five calendar years in total, if the customer has had no contact with the Bank and/or the account remains unclaimed, the account will be subject to review and closure. Any unclaimed funds will be transferred to the Central Bank of UAE as per the regulatory obligations of the Bank under the Dormant Account Regulation 2020, Article 8.
