To deposit cheques at a Post Office, you'll need
- a personalised paying in slip and a deposit envelope along with the cheque(s) you want to deposit.
For a cheque paid into your account on a working day, as long as it isn't returned to us as unpaid, you'll get the funds by midnight two working days later, as it takes longer for us to process cheques through the Post Office.
To use this service, you'll need to pre-order paying in slips and deposit envelopes by calling 0800 9 123 123.
