We’re here to help

Notify payers

You’ll want payments likes ones from your employer/unemployment benefits agency, child benefit fund, health insurance fund, tax authorities or the National Pensions Office to be paid into your new account. We’ll happily arrange that for you.

If you’d rather inform everyone yourself, you can easily specify that on your application form. See more to help you sort things out yourself.

Move direct debits

If you pay regular bills by direct debit, there’s even no need to contact the likes of your Internet provider (Telenet, Proximus, etc.) or electricity supplier. We’ll be glad to get in touch with them for you. If you’d still prefer to do that yourself, just tell us on your application form.

Your savings accounts and investments

Totally want to move to us? Great! You can also move your savings accounts, investments and pension savings from your former bank. You’ll have to switch those yourself, but help is still at hand. Contact KBC Brussels Live and they'll be happy to tell you the best way to do this.
