SBI is India’s biggest bank, allowing users to digitally assign nominees to their SBI account from their home or office. That means SBI Bank customers no longer need to visit their local branch to update the nominee’s data.

State Bank of India offers customers a nomination option for savings accounts, lockers, and safe deposit vaults. The nomination service is only accessible for accounts created independently, individually, jointly, or with a single proprietary business.

The account holder may create, cancel, or modify the nomination anytime. All account holders must approve the request before making a nomination, cancellation, or change. SBI advises current and new customers to utilize the nomination service if they haven’t already done so. If the depositor does not intend to make a nomination, they must state so on the account opening form.

What is SBI’s Nomination Facility?

Nomination is a service provided to depositors. It permits a bank account holder to choose a person to receive the account’s assets in the case of the depositor’s unexpected passing or death. Nomination is accessible at the State Bank of India for deposit accounts. Only one individual may be nominated.

How Can you add a Nominee to your SBI Account?

There are three methods for adding a nominee to your SBI account.

  1. At SBI branch 
  2. By SBI Online Banking
  3. Through SBI Yono Mobile Banking

Important points to remember

  • Nomination is accessible for all bank accounts, safe deposit vaults, and objects in custody.
  • Nomination is only allowed for accounts created in an individual capacity (single, joint, or sole proprietorship), not representative accounts.
  • Only one individual may be nominated. Nomination for more than one person (up to two people) is permitted in shared locker accounts with common permission.
  • The account holder may make, cancel, or change nominations anytime. Nomination, cancellation, or modification requires a witness and signatures from all account holders.
  • A minor can also be nominated. Until the minor reaches the majority, the natural guardian will receive the amount.
  • Existing accounts that have not been nominated can be nominated by filling out the form available at the branches.
  • The nominee’s right to receive payment from the Bank arises only after the depositor’s death or the death of all depositors in joint accounts.
  • If the depositor(s) do not wish to make a nomination, they must indicate so on the account opening form with their full signature.
