Here’s a list of the most commonly used banking words and what they mean.
A unique number that only your account has. It’s made up of eight digits and no letters, like 12345678.
A six-digit number, with a dash every two numbers, that’s unique to the branch where you opened your account.
PIN stands for Personal Identification Number. It’s a four-digit number that acts like a password for your card, so you should never share it with anyone. You’ll need to use it when you’re buying something with your card or getting money out of a cash machine.
The amount of money you have in your account.
Our app that lets you bank on your smartphone or tablet. You can download it from any app store.
A bank card that lets you pay in shops, online and take out money from cash machines (if you have the funds in your account).
A bank card that you can only use to take money out of cash machines (if you have the funds in your account). You won’t be able to use our app with this card.
An amount of money a bank gives you, just for keeping money in your account.
If you’re paying online or over the phone, you may be asked for your card’s security code. This is the last three digits printed on the signature strip on the back of your card. It’s sometimes referred to as the CVV or CVC.
