Transfer made to a closed bank account

Updated 1 month ago by Xavier Mayo

Lydia has no way to check if the bank account you sent money to is valid or not.

If you transfer money to a bank account account that is closed, Lydia cannot detect this.

What happens if you sent money to a wrong account 🤷

First, the receiving bank will notify Lydia of the rejected transfer.

This step can take several days - sometimes up to 15 days.

Getting your money back 💰

Once the receiving bank has notified Lydia that it has rejected the transfer, you'll get recredited in 3 working days. You'll be notified by email.

You can then perform the transfer to another bank account: make sure that the IBAN account numbers are valid by contacting the account holder first 😉

How did we do?
