A nominee in a bank account is a person who is entitled to receive all the funds and manage all the dues in the event of the primary account holder’s demise. The nominee in a bank account acts as a trustee and gets all the claimed proceeds of the account holder, just like a legal heir. You can appoint any of your family members, friends, relatives or someone you trust as a nominee in your bank account details. 

Banks in the UAE allow account holders to add one nominee for each bank account. They can add a nominee to their bank account using online banking or mobile banking app at their convenience. 

Keep reading to know how you can add a nominee to your online bank account with great ease.
