What to do if your account will be closed soon

Brexit and the EEA

If you have an address outside the UK, but within the European Economic Area (EEA), you may face changes to your banking and investment products and services in the future.

How do I close an account with you?

The steps you need to take will depend on the type of account you want to close.

Reclaiming your money if your address is in the EEA

If we’ve written to you to let you know we’re closing your savings or current account because you have an address in the European Economic Area (EEA), you should now make alternative banking arrangements, withdraw any money in your account and close it.
