After receiving your bank account number, please record in your NEPTUN under Finances / Settings / Add bank account number / Save.

WHEN YOU FINISH YOUR STUDIES AND LEAVE HUNGARY, DO NOT FORGET TO CLOSE YOUR BANK ACCOUNT! (Try not not make any transactions on the last day, because it will make closing difficult. The bank will pay you the balance in cash)
