Won't My BVN Name/DOB Affect My NYSC?

As the Nigerian government continues to force citizens to perfect their data through NIN, BVN, and similar other mechanisms, you should be curious to know if NYSC will be affected if you have some errors e.g. names on BVN.

Some perspective corpers have different names on their BVN. Some have different dates of birth on them - different from what they use for NYSC or that on their certificate or statement of results.

If you're in this mess, should you be worried? If yes, what should you do to be proactive? Let's explore this concern.

NYSC Doesn't Need Your BVN To Clear You

The first thing as soon as you enter camp is the clearance. The clearance, of course, is manual. Officials will check your credentials before clearing you to continue with the orientation.

However, at this stage, the credentials required exclude the BVN. Hence, if you have any issue with the names or date of birth on your BVN, it's not their business. You'll be cleared here to continue with your 21-day on-camp activities.

BVN Comes In For the Payment of Allowee

If there is any reason you go for NYSC in the first place, it's to wear the pride khaki and to earn the national allowee. 

However, the payment is not made by hand - rather you'll get your monthly alerts through your bank. Unfortunately, you may be forced to open a new account with a bank other than the one you're currently using.

Now, that you have issues with the name or date of birth on your BVN, your bank may temporarily delay posting your money until you resolve the matter.

Yes, experience with similar programs e.g. Npower, has given us clues to what's likely going to happen if you're expecting NYSC stipends with a bank account that has different information from the one you have with NYSC.

NYSC really wants to be proactive to avoid paying your allowee into the wrong account or Fraudster's wallet. Hence, there is a need to be sure all the information is the same across the board.

How To Correct BVN Information To Tally With NYSC Information

Especially before going to the camp, you should take some steps to get your BVN information tally with that which you'll use with NYSC.

If you need to correct your BVN (Bank Verification Number) information, don't worry! Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Head to your bank: Pay a visit to the branch where you initially registered for your BVN. They'll be able to assist you with the correction process.
  2. Get the BVN correction form: Approach one of the bank representatives and kindly ask for a BVN correction form. They'll hand you the necessary paperwork to fill out.
  3. Fill in the form: Take your time to complete the form accurately. Make sure to provide the correct details that need to be updated, such as your name, address, date of birth, or phone number.
  4. Attach the required documents: Along with the form, you'll need to provide supporting documents. These usually include a valid means of identification, like your International Passport, National Identity Card, Driver's License, or Voter's Card. You might also need to provide proof of address, such as a utility bill or bank statement.
  5. Submit everything: Once you've filled out the form and gathered the necessary documents, hand them over to the bank representative. They'll review your information and process your request.
  6. Keep track of your request: It's a good idea to follow up with the bank after submitting your correction request. Ask for a reference number or any other information that can help you keep track of the progress.
  7. Await confirmation: The bank will review your request and make the required corrections to your BVN information. Soon enough, you'll receive a confirmation letting you know that everything has been updated.


NYSC may not take the BVN errors seriously with your as that doesn't concern them directly. However, your bank may head into some blockage while trying to pay your monthly salary. Hence, it'll be rational to get things corrected before going to the camp in the first place. If you're already in camp, a visiting bank may help you look into it or visit any available branch as soon as you're deployed.

The exact process might vary slightly depending on the bank you're dealing with. So, if you have any specific questions or need further assistance, don't hesitate to reach out to your bank directly. They'll be more than happy to guide you through the process.
