Want to switch your account?
We aim to make it as easy as possible to switch your current account to us and we’re delighted to offer a Current Account Switch Service which is backed by the industry-wide Current Account Switch Guarantee.
Through our full Current Account Switch Service we will:
- Move all payments in and out of your old account to your new Post Office account
- Move any remaining credit balance from your old account to your new Post Office account
- Close your old account
- Complete your switch in 7 working days and on a date of your choice
The Current Account Switch Guarantee ensures your current account will switch on a day of your choice, your payments will be automatically transferred and redirected to your new account, and in the unlikely event anything goes wrong with your switch, we will refund any interest and charges (incurred on your old or new current accounts) as a result of this failure as soon as it is brought to our attention.
We also offer a partial Post Office Money Switch Service through our dedicated switching team. With this service you can choose which payments to move across and can keep your old account open.
You can start your switch either when you open your Post Office Money Current Account or at any time after it’s up and running. Full details about the Current Account Switch Service are available in our Current Account Switching Service booklet, where you will find the Current Account Switch Guarantee and answers to frequently asked questions.
If you have a bank account that includes an overdraft you can switch to us using the Current Account Switch Service. And if you’d like to have an overdraft just speak to us before starting your switch. We will advise if you’re eligible for an overdraft, dependent on our lending criteria and your credit status. Note, overdrafts are only eligible on the Post Office Standard Current Account.
