To apply for any of these accounts, you must be 18+ and a UK resident. Specific account criteria and eligibility apply.
What does a joint bank account mean?
Having a joint bank account is the same as having your own, except two people have control over the account, including any arranged overdraft (subject to approval).
Both people can spend money from the account, and we'll give you a Contactless Visa Debit Card each. You'll also be able to manage your joint bank account together using our Mobile Banking app, or via Online Banking.

All you need to do is tell us the details of your old bank account and when you want the Switch to start.
We can not switch savings accounts or ISAs through this service. Any other products you have with your old bank will not be moved at the same time.
