weekend banking hours open saturday sunday branch map locator

Security Bank’s priority is the protection, security, and welfare of our employees and clients. That’s why, in light of the Luzon-wide Enhanced COVID-19 Quarantine, we’re extending payment due dates for Credit Cards and Loans. 

In compliance with the Bayanihan Act, all customers with a Credit Card, Home Loan, Personal Loan, Auto Loan, Business Mortgage Loan, or Business Express Loan whose loans with ORIGINAL payment due dates that fall within the government-mandated Community Quarantine (ECQ, MECQ) period from March 17 to May 31, 2020 are granted a loan payment extension.

Upon lifting of the ECQ/MECQ period in the entire country on June 1, 2020, collection of payments for loans and credit cards will resume.

You can still opt to pay through Security Bank Online Banking, branches, and payment partners (for cards).
