With Online Banking

The easiest way to change your address and contact details (including your telephone number and email address) is to log on to Online Banking

If you have a joint account, you can only change your own address and contact details in Online Banking. If both addresses/contact details need to be changed, both account holders should log on to their own Online Banking to change their own details.

To update your details, log on to your account and click the 'My Details & Settings' tab, then:

  • choose ‘Change personal details’ in the left-hand menu 
  • pick the details you want to change
  • add your new details and click ‘Continue’
  • we’ll send a One Time Passcode (OTP) to your registered mobile number
  • enter your Security Number and OTP 
  • click ‘Confirm’ to change your details.

If you don’t have access to the mobile number that’s currently registered for OTP, we can update it for you. Find out more about One Time Passcodes

In a branch
You can also change your contact details by visiting one of our branches with your debit or credit card, or with your passbook and proof of ID with a signature such as a UK/EEA passport or full UK driving licence. See the full list of accepted identification

If you would like to, you can also print and fill out a change of details form (42 KB) at home and bring it into any branch.

You can also visit our contact us page for more information on how to change your personal details.

Important information for customers with alerts: If you have account alerts set up on your account and you want these to be sent to your updated telephone number and/or email address, then you'll need to amend your alerts using the 'Account Services' tab in Online Banking as they're not automatically updated when you change your details.

You can easily update your mobile, home or work number with Online Banking. 

  • Log on to Online Banking
  • Go to the ‘My Details & Settings’ tab.
  • Click ‘Change personal details’ in the left-hand menu.
  • Choose ‘Change contact details’.
  • Add your mobile number without the first zero and with no spaces (for example, 7712123918), then click ‘Continue’.
  • We’ll send an OTP to your registered mobile number.
  • Enter your Security Number and OTP.
  • Click ‘Confirm’ to change your number.
