    in/on your account

    Hello.

    The money has been transferred to your account. Verify it, please.

    I use 'to' here. But if I just want to ask whether the money is in/on your account, which preposition I should use?

    Thank you!

    Use, 'in'.

    Re: in/on your account

    Thank you, Roman55.
    Could I also say 'at your account'?

    On your account exists, but it means on your behalf. You deposit money in someone's account.
