List of USSD codes for financial, government services that you need to know

Co-Op post

In an increasingly digitized world, access to financial services & government information has become more convenient and efficient. This new era has been made possible thanks to USSD codes.

These have transformed the way people interact with their banks and government agencies, making essential services accessible to a broader population, including those who may not have smartphones or regular internet access.

How do USSDs work

USSD stands for Unstructured Supplementary Service Data. These are short strings of numbers and special characters, which start with an asterisk (*) and end with a hash (#).

They are dialled directly on mobile phones and provide a quick and user-friendly way to access specific services and information.

Unlike mobile apps/internet browsing, USSD codes require no internet connectivity, making them ideal for regions with limited internet infrastructure.

For financial institutions, USSD codes have become a game-changer, offering customers the ability to check account balances, transfer funds, pay bills, and even apply for loans. This is all without the need for internet access/visiting a physical bank branch.

This level of accessibility has improved financial inclusion and enabled individuals from various socioeconomic backgrounds to participate in the formal banking sector.

Not to forget, the Kenyan government has harnessed the potential that USSD codes have to extend services to citizens efficiently. USSDs have provided a great bridge between government agencies and the public, effectively empowering them.
