MANILA – Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co. (Metrobank) said its platforms remain online even as operations of branches in areas affected by Typhoon “Karding” have been suspended on Monday.
 
In an advisory, the bank said its internet banking platform Metrobank online, the Metrobank mobile app, the automated teller machines (ATMs), and the cash acceptance machines (CAMs) are available for financial transactions.
 
“In line with government office suspension, PESONet transactions are unavailable today,” it said.
 
Malacañang on Sunday suspended classes and work in government agencies in “Karding”-affected areas after noting the report of the state-weather bureau.
 
Areas covered by the suspension include the National Capital Region (NCR), Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Region IV-A, Region IV-B, and Bicol Region.
 
For the list of over 50 branches affected by the work suspension during the day, Metrobank urged its customers to check these at www.metrobank.com.ph.
 
It said updates are posted on the bank’s Facebook page and Twitter account. (PNA)
