What Can I Do If My Branch is Closing?

If you rely on the face-to-face contact that is offered by your high street branch, finding out it is closing can be a worrying time.

However, there are a number of ways that you can still access basic banking services when your local branch has closed down.

If you have a local Post Office you should be able to do most basic banking tasks with them.

This will not apply if you need to apply for a loan or open a new bank account, but they should be able to help you with basic banking.

Many banks also offer a mobile banking service where the bank brings a bus to your area where services that are usually available at your branch can be obtained.

Just give your bank a call and they will be able to tell you if they offer that service and when and where the bus will be.

Other banks use buildings such as village halls or libraries to offer mobile banking services.

If you are unsure how to access the services that your local branch used to offer it is best to give them a call and ask what options are available to you.
