ERBIL (Kurdistan24) – Kurdistan24 Reporter Aram Bakhtiar on Friday stated that the first set of ATMs will be installed outside the Sulaimani Municipality as part of the MyAccount project.

In the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRG), more than 25,000 civil servants received their April salaries via their MyAccount master cards, and the number is expected to grow for the May salary.

Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Masrour Barzani on May 31, in a post on X called for Kurdistan Region civil servants to continue registering for the MyAccount initiative.

The government’s Department of Information Technology (DIT) designed, tested, piloted, and implemented a secure application for onboarding KRG civil servants into the program in line with the Central Bank of Iraq’s Know-Your-Customer (KYC) needs, according to a press release previously shared with Kurdistan24.

Eight banks have so far taken part in the project, including BBAC, Cihan, RT Bank, Bank of Baghdad, Iraqi Islamic Bank, National Bank of Iraq, Trade Bank of Iraq, and the International Development Bank.

MyAccount project is the KRG's financial inclusion program which aims to "provide public sector beneficiaries with a safe and convenient way to access their salaries."
