Questions on Linking

No, you should be fully verified to be able to link your UnionBank Account to GCash. To learn more on how to get verified, please visit this page.
4. I did not receive an OTP during account linking.
This may be due to any of the following:
- Your UnionBank-registered mobile number may not be updated. Please update your UnionBank-registered mobile number via UnionBank Online or visit your UnionBank branch.
- Your internet connection is unstable.
5. Can I link multiple UnionBank accounts?
No, each user can only link one UnionBank account to one GCash account at a time. If you wish to use a different account, you must first unlink the account you are currently using.
