OFBank has completed the initial phase of Remittance Operation through outsourcing of Remittance System from LANDBANK. In this regard, OFWs may now send/ remit funds from abroad to the Philippines using the OFBank account as destination account or through cash pick-up to OFBank branches. There are three (3) ways to send money to your beneficiary in the Philippines through OFBank. Please choose from:
Option 1: Via remittance partner of LANDBANK worldwide (please see https://www.landbank.com/remittance-partners)
You may send the money through any remittance partner of LANDBANK (please refer to list) located worldwide using Land Bank Remittance System (LBRS). The beneficiary has to personally pick-up the cash from any OFBank branch by presenting the Transaction Reference Number and valid ID. The remittance may be claimed the same day the remittance was sent. You may also request the money to be credited to the beneficiary’s account in OFBank instead of cash pick-up subject to a minimum fee of ₱50.
Option 2: Via Foreign Bank using SWIFT code
You may send the money through a Foreign Bank via SWIFT using LANDBANK as intermediary bank for further credit to Overseas Filipino Bank account. OFBank will notify the beneficiary once received from the Foreign Bank, normally 1 to 5 banking days depending on the cut-off time of the Foreign Bank.
Note: Please follow this instruction when sending money via SWIFT Code
