Among its deposit catalogue, there include a variety of account types such as remittance, super junior, jijenge, business savings, call accounts, fixed deposits and current accounts which require specific documentation for membership.
However, certain accounts need to be active in order to avoid them being dormant which in the case of Equity bank, it usually takes about 12 months of inactivity i.e without transactions of either deposits or withdrawals.
Fortunately, holders of dormant accounts are able to receive funds as well as check balances using either equitel lines or Eazzy banking app but cannot access them unless the dormant account is reactivated.
