Five apps you can help your mom use to make money management easier
We have drawn up a list of five things that you can teach your mom to do using apps, which can make it easier for her to manage her money matters in the comfort of her home
It’s Mother’s Day, but unfortunately, this year there is no possibility of treating your mom to a meal at her favourite restaurant or ordering flowers or gifts for her. But there are still things you can do to make your mother’s life a little easier and to show her how much she means to you
We have drawn up a list of five things that you can teach your mom to do using apps, which can make it easier for her to manage her money matters in the comfort of her home. Coach her through the installation and use of the right apps to simplify everything from transferring money to buying groceries during lockdown, and even afterwards.
Banking: If your mom doesn’t use digital banking and insists on going to the bank for every errand, there is no better time to break the habit. Most banks now allow you to activate internet baking from the comfort of your home. Just talk her through the steps: go to the bank’s website and click “new user”. Use the customer ID (can be found in the welcome kit given by the bank when an account is opened, as well as the cheque book, passbook and other communications from the bank) and account number and debit card PIN to authenticate. Enter the OTP sent to the registered mobile number to complete the process.
