Any bank in the Philippines accepts money transfers from PNB remittance services, states the Philippine National Bank. Transfer the money to a PNB Global Filipino Card, schedule a cash pick-up or deliver the money to the beneficiary's door. PNB also offers payment tracking.

It is also possible to send a payment through one of PNB's correspondent banks by applying for a fund or swift transfer at the correspondent bank and filling out a remittance application, notes Philippine National Bank. The application requires personal information about both the person sending the money and the beneficiary, such as name, address and telephone number. There is a limit to how much money a person can send via this method. The PNB website maintains a list of correspondent banks in the United States.

To send a payment over the counter, visit one of PNB's branches or agent locations in the United States, fill out a remittance application form, and present one valid form of identification, such as a driver's license, passport, citizenship card or permanent resident card, explains Philippine National Bank. PNB accepts debit cards, cash and checks, though a personal check requires a clearing period.
