  • Eligibility

    • You must be 18 or over and a UK resident to apply
    • The Classic Plus account is restricted to one account in your sole name, and another Plus account in joint names
    • Please note: if you have more than one Plus account in your sole name or more than one Plus account in joint names, we may convert your additional account into an Enhance account or another current account from our range. We’ll give you at least two months’ notice before we do this.
    • If you don't log in to Internet Banking within 12 months, we might have to turn off your paperless correspondence, which will mean you won't get your interest. We don't want that to happen, so please log in regularly.
    • You can choose to switch your banking to us when you apply for a Classic Plus account, or any time after you've opened it - we guarantee switching will take just 7 working days.
