Our Editor's Notes on Citibank's Phone-Based Customer Care

Citibank provides consumer banking and financial services in 19 countries, including the United States. As is true of many large banks, Citibank gets a lot of calls to its customer support team.

Why do People Call Citibank Customer Support?

People call Citibank customer support for a range of reasons, including:

  • Questions about opening accounts
  • Getting information about taking out a loan
  • Reporting fraud and identity theft
  • Applying for a credit card
  • Assistance with an existing credit card
  • Help and questions about investment, savings, checking and loan accounts
  • Informing Citibank about a move or travel

Best Tips for Calling Citibank Customer Support

Citibank has multiple toll-free lines for different customer service concerns. In addition, Citibank also has different TTY/TDD lines as well. Calling the right number can shorten the amount of time you have to spend on the phone and help ensure that your issue is resolved quickly.

When you call, make sure you have your debit or credit card with you. If you are calling about a checking or savings account, make sure you also have your account number, which can be found on your paper checks or an account statement. Having this information can help the customer service representative bring up your account.

How do People Feel About Their Calls to Citibank Customer Support?

Citibank has received high marks for customer satisfaction by media outlets and industry analysts, such as Bankrate and ACSI. It should be noted that some consumers have expressed dissatisfaction with being able to talk to a human when calling. Others are unhappy with issues that go unresolved for days and weeks, with different customer support representatives giving conflicting information.

Media Reports

A consumer advocate working for the New York Post recently featured a story about a Citibank credit card holder who was trying to deal with several fraudulent charges to his card. According to the cardholder, Citibank failed to properly investigate the charges, even after several months of back and forth. The situation was resolved, but only after the consumer advocate got involved.

What Kind of Issues Can Citibank Customer Service Resolve Over the Phone?

As is true of most modern banks, Citibank offers a wide range of banking services online and by phone. These issues include:

  • Checking and inquiring about bank balances
  • Expediting services, such as replacement credit and debit cards
  • Questions about loans
  • Closing or opening an account
  • Verifying and disputing purchases and charges
  • Account type changes and upgrades
  • Updating personal information
  • Noting credit and debit card accounts when you travel overseas

It's important to note, however, that there are situations in which a relatively straightforward customer service request is complicated by unusual or out of the ordinary factors. In these cases, a phone representative may not be able to assist you.

What Issues Can't Be Resolved by Calling Citibank?

There are some issues that can't easily be resolved by Citibank's telephone customer service team. These issues may involve the need for banking customers, or bank representatives, to sign physical documents or have these signatures witnessed by a banker or notary. If you need to remove someone from an account or handle a similar issue, you may have to visit a local branch.

There are also some banking products that you may need to purchase directly at a branch, such as cashier's checks and money orders.

What do I do if Dissatisfied with my Call to Citibank?

If you get off the phone with a Citibank customer support representative feeling frustrated with a lack of resolution, don't fret. You still have options.

First, take a few moments to collect yourself. Then, write down what happened during the call. Try to remember what you asked for and the responses you received. Having this information in front of you can help you describe your predicament to other customer service representatives.

Write down your goals: What is your preferred resolution as a result of your calls? These can be helpful in keeping future calls or communications on track.

Next, try the following:

  • Call Citibank again. The next customer service representative that you speak to might be better trained or more experienced.
  • Try an alternate way of getting in touch with Citibank. Citibank offers a live chat option on its website, which provides you with a written record of your customer service chat, something that can be useful if you need to escalate your case. It is also possible to correspond with Citibank via postal mail.
  • Citibank is active on social media. Try getting the attention of a member of their social media team on Facebook or Twitter.
  • Visit a local Citibank branch. While this requires a bit more effort, it may be easier to explain your issue when face-to-face with a banker. This option also allows you to bring in documents that are relevant to your case without having to send them electronically or by fax.
