What checks do you do before I can open a savings account?

We will verify your address, identity and nominated account details before opening an account for you.

We do this by checking various electronic databases. We may ask you to take a selfie with your smartphone and upload a passport or driving licence as part of this process.

If we are unable to verify you in this way, we may ask you to supply us with some identity documents by email or post. We will not be able to open your account until we have successfully verified your details.
