Why do I need to confirm beneficiaries?

For security reasons, you need to confirm new beneficiaries in e-banking or Mobile Banking using your Access Card. A prompt will appear whenever you need to confirm a beneficiary.

Good to know: Some beneficiaries, such as health insurers or telecommunications providers, have been confirmed in advance by UBS.

Set payment limit

If you would prefer not to confirm your beneficiaries, you can instead set a monthly limit for online payments (up to CHF 1,500) in e-banking or mobile banking.

Important: Please note that a one-time confirmation is needed for beneficiaries even if you have previously made payments within the defined payment limits to the same beneficiary.

Go to “Security > Payment limit” in the top right to set payment limits

Go to “Settings & services > Self-service > Set monthly payment limit” to set payment limits.
