How to Write Letter

Authorization Letter Bank Account

Bank is a financial institute, where you can open an account and manage your money as per your needs. There are different types of accounts that you can hold in a bank. The most common among those are saving accounts and checking accounts. Let's see some of the aspects of the saving account.


Saving accounts are opened for depositing and withdrawing money from the account. You can deposit your money in this account anytime you wish, or when you have cash in your hand. To open this account, you should deposit a certain amount with the bank which differs among banks. Holding a saving account doesn't give you a high rate of interest as compare to other accounts. Saving accounts are helpful in case of emergency as there is no restriction on withdrawing money from this account. The only condition of this account is to maintain a minimum balance required by the bank.

As we are talking about saving account, let's find the reason to write an authorization for this type of account. You may need to write an authorization letter to open an account, close an account, release your account information to other party, or transfer the money from your account. When you have taken a loan, you can authorize the bank to debit the monthly EMI (Equal Monthly Installments) from your saving account.

Dear Pappas,

I have taken a personal loan of $15,000/- from your bank. I am paying the regular monthly EMI of $700/- through cheque.

Since it is impossible for me to drop a cheque every month in your branch before the due date, I request you to debit the said amount from my saving account of your bank on the due date. The saving account number is XL-12478596.

This letter will give you the authority to do the needful and debit my saving account for $700/- every month. This authorization letter will be in effect till further written notice.

Yours faithfully,
Amber S. Beck
