In the case of an incorrect BVN, kindly ensure you typed your correct BVN details. You do not know your BVN or you are not sure of the digits? dial *565*0# on your phone to retrieve your BVN.
Why am I not getting the BVN verification code? The BVN verification code is a four (4) digit number sent to the mobile number associated with your BVN to verify that the BVN belongs to you.
