Two days left to change old $100s

The Central Bank (CBTT) is reminding the public that the $100 cotton note will no longer be legal tender from January 1, 2020.

CBTT emphasized that all persons and organisations must take responsibility for ensuring that their $100 cotton notes are exchanged to the $100 polymer bill on time. This can be done either through commercial banks or the CBTT.

Customers are urged to check their respective financial institutions for details on opening hours.

The Central Bank has extended its working hours to facilitate the exchange from 8 am to 3 pm on weekdays until the deadline. Meanwhile, on December 28, 2019, and December 29, 2019, the hours will be from 9 am to 3 pm. 

The CBTT will also operate through the Unit Trust Corporation Office in Scarborough, Tobago on December 28, 2019, December 29, 2019, and December 30, 2019, from 8 am to 2 pm.

There are very specific conditions for the exchange of $100 cotton notes after December 31, 2019, from the Central Bank. Details are available in advertisements in the daily newspapers, on the Central Bank’s website and by emailing
