In letter writing discussion, it’s good to greet the person who you’re writing to, right? Now, let me let you know, without greeting in a letter to a manager of a bank, your letter writing will be recommended as the best, hence it’ll must be read first. That is, it is not allowed to greet in a letter when you are writing to a bank.

The type of a letter writing without greeting is called formal letter. A formal letter is a type of letter which is determined to be written to a person who his/her position is more than your own. Do you see bank manager every time you go the bank? If you don’t, then respect him or her when writing to him or her so that he/she should attend to you very fast.

How to write an application letter to Bank for any of your problem

As you may know in the previous paragraphs in this article, the type of a letter to any bank manager must be a formal one, though, some people may not know how to write a formal letter as a result of social media around.

Social media has prevented a lot of people from learning how to write a letter, because every one knows how to dial a mobile number or log in to their Facebook account to discuss anything they want with any body they want.

Sadly, bank has a telephone number, but they don’t listen to you unless you write a letter to their manager with your hand and put in your personal signature especially when it’s to resolving security-like problem.

Below are the step by step procedures you can take when writing a formal letter to a bank for urgent assistance:

When writing a letter to bank, a type of the letter to be written is formal letter, hence, it must have two addresses, yours and the address of the office where it’s going.

I advise you to use the address on your bank information. Your address must come first at the top right hand corner, for example,

12, Opposite Yisab Oil Ltd,


Kogi State,

26th may, 2021.

The manager,

Zenith Bank of Nigeria,

Adankolo Branch,

Lokoja, Kogi State.

Dear Manager of (Bank name and branch name),


Please take note of comma at the end of each line of address. Write your date in full form, see mine, 26th may, 2021. Do not write it as twenty first (or 21/05/2021) otherwise it becomes another thing without meaning.

After your salutation, Dear Sir / Madam, put your topic at the center. Your topic should be very short and informing, in fact, make it to look very neat and it should be made in a way that it will represent all the purpose of your letter.

For example, write to the manager of your bank requesting him/her to unblock your account. Now, in this way, something like this should be your topic: PLEASE UNBLOCK MY ACCOUNT.

You see? We have four words which is very neat. I advise that you write your topic with all words in capital letters because writing it with the first letter of each word in capital letters is very technical as some words are not recommended to start with capital letters.

If you write your topic in capital letters, you should not underline it but if you write in small letters, you must underline it.

For example, while writing formal letter to the manager of your bank, strict language should be used, i.e, don’t be too friendly. Just simply write what you have in mind to write.

You don’t need to greet in Formal letter, for example, ”how are you, Sir?”, ”have you woke up successfully this morning?”, etc.

It is not allowed to have an error(s) in your letter to bank manager. You can use strange words or big gramma in your letter but make sure to use them accordingly.

When you have finished writing the body of your letter, down the right corner, write: Yours faithfully and comma on the same line.

On the third line, write your full names, starting with your surname. If you are not a man or boy, then indicate Miss/Mrs beside your name and bracket it.

For example:

Yours faithfully,

Mariam Yusuf (Miss)

Note that Y is capital in Yours but f in faithfully is small letter.
