Cover may also be provided if you are made unemployed through no fault of your own. It could also help pay off your overdraft if you die.

Cover is available to Personal Overdraft customers who are aged 18 or over and under 70 and are resident in the UK. 

More than just money

In addition to financial help, we offer a range of services to help while you are off work.

Our back-to-work service can offer support if you have been made unemployed.

The service includes self-help booklets, help with writing a CV and access to careers websites.

Cost of cover

This statement of price provides you with full information concerning the cost of your Barclays Personal Overdraft Payment Protection Insurance Policy.

The monthly premium, per person covered, for your Barclays Personal Overdraft Payment Protection Insurance including Insurance Premium Tax at the rate that applies at the date of payment, is calculated at a rate of 80p for every £100 of your insured overdraft limit. Please note that for joint applications, the total premium payable will be the combined premiums for each applicant applying for cover.

The premium (and related benefit) is based on the overdraft limit and will be charged irrespective of your actual usage of the overdraft facility. The premium rate will be periodically reviewed by the insurer, at least annually, and you will receive 30 days' prior notice in writing of any premium change. We may also change your premiums if the insurance premium tax rate changes.

The monthly premium price for your Barclays Personal Overdraft Payment Protection Insurance will be debited from your account on the first working day of the month. If your account is overdrawn at the time the premium is charged, or if the payment or the premium results in an overdraft, you will pay interest on the premium amount.

Barclays Personal Overdraft Payment Protection Insurance is optional and is not a condition of taking out or holding an overdraft with Barclays Bank PLC. Before applying for this product it's important that you calculate your monthly premium and read the guide to insurance 180 KB to understand what's covered and what's not.

If you have any questions or would like advice and recommendation on your personal circumstances, you can go into a branch and speak to a member of staff.
