Opening an account is easy. If you're over 18 and live in the UK, all you need to apply is the sort code and account number of your personal UK bank or building society account.
Step 1 Gather Information
Please have your personal information available: address, email address, date of birth, bank account details, telephone number and your mother’s maiden name.
Step 2 Complete Application
Complete the easy-to-use online application. As with all UK savings accounts, we check your identity and address before you open an account. To make this as easy as possible for you, we do this by checking a number of electronic databases. In some cases we may need to ask you to send us some identification by post. We will tell you this before your account is opened.
Step 3 Submit Application
Once you complete the application, you will receive an email with further information. You may need to submit further identification, or you may be able to fund your account immediately.
Step 4 Fund Account
When your account is set up, you'll be sent information on how to fund your account. You can do this by bank transfer or by cheque.
