Some of you have asked us whether bunq is offering a P-Konto. 🌈
What is a P-Konto?
Pfändungsschutzkonten (or P-Konto) is a type of account that exists only in Germany. It is used to protect the users’ funds from creditors with the intention to protect the minimum funds necessary for living and simultaneously ease the work of courts and their bailiffs.
Does bunq offer P-Konto?
Now that we know what P-Konto is and what it is used for, let’s discuss whether bunq offers it.
bunq is regulated by Dutch law and since P-Konto is offered only by German banks, it is not available with us. We are legally required to follow instructions from authorities if it concerns a garnishment or account seizure.
However, you don’t have to worry about the security of your bunq account because we only process official communication from authorities and your funds are safe with us.
To keep your account safer than ever we also made it possible for you to create multiple sub-accounts for various purposes which you can also share with other people. By creating these accounts you can organise your funds in a convenient way for you and keep your savings and monthly budgets on separate accounts.
