State Bank of India (SBI) has announced that henceforth it will also send pension slips through WhatsApp for the convenience of senior citizens.
The bank said the process is “seamless”, and all customers have to do is send a “Hello” message to a designated number from the comfort of their homes to activate the service.
“Get your pension slip on WhatsApp now! Enjoy a hassle-free service at your convenience. Send ‘Hi’ to +91 9022690226 on WhatsApp to avail the service,” SBI tweeted.
After the WhatsApp message, the bank will return with three options: Balance Enquiry, Mini Statement, and Pension Slip. Refugees can choose one of three options depending on their needs.

Last month, Punjab National Bank (PNB) also announced that it will provide banking services through WhatsApp as part of its new age facilities. Customers need to send a message “Hello” to PNB WhatsApp number +919264092640 to avail the services.
