NYSC BVN Issue: This is what every PCM should do now

NYSC BVN Issue and how to rectify it before going to NYSC orientation camp.

This is to inform all the Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) that the names they have on their school documents should correspond to the name on their Bank Verification Number (BVN) for NYSC registration.

If the name on your school documents varies from what you have on BVN, you may have problem during registration at camp.

The problem will begin when you would want to open NYSC allowance account, which is mandatory to open in camp.

So, whether you are a foreign trained or locally trained graduate, make sure you sort it out before going to camp. I repeat ensure that the name on your BVN match or correspond to the name on your school documents.

This is necessary because in NYSC camp, every Corps member is mandated to open a new bank account for NYSC allowance.

In the NYSC camp, a document that will serve as government identity will be given to you to open the account. The name on the document will be taken from your school document.

The Bank officials at NYSC camp will check if the name on the document correspond with your name on your BVN. Only if it corresponds that you will open NYSC allowance account.

Also, do not forget to go to camp with your BVN because it will be needed for that purpose.
