How salary portability works

The Brazilian Central Bank has recently authorized salary portability for online banks. The procedure is free of charge, and workers don't need to visit their branch to request it. Salary portability is done 100 percent online, and can be requested on the app.

The old Central Bank rule was that salary accounts could only be transferred between banks, and portability had to be requested at the source bank, where the employer made the payroll.

Salary portability means simply you can transfer your paycheck, on the same day and at no cost, to the institution of your choice.

The main benefits are:

  • You get better fees, since you can choose your bank;
  • You only have to ask for it once;
  • Seize this opportunity and brink your salary account to Agibank. You'll have online credit, an international credit card with no annuities, and lots more unique benefits.

How to request salary portability

Just open your account and request salary portability right on the app. It's quick, easy, and free.

If you're already an Agibank customer, open the app, log in and go to the sidebar, where you can click on “Trazer meu Salário” (“Bring my salary over”). Next, fill out the form with the required data. If you're not a customer yet, the first step is to download the app and open your account. Once that's done, just follow the steps above.
