Third party access to help manage your finances

If you need help with your day-to-day banking, you can nominate someone you trust to access your account(s) to do things like pay bills or withdraw money for you. This is called third party access.

We use Adobe Sign for this kind of request. Adobe will pass the information you provide to us in a secure manner and won’t process it in any other way. Information on how we use your data can be found in our Data Privacy Notice.

What is third party access?

Third party access (or a third party mandate) is where someone you trust helps to manage your money. It may be useful for you if:

  • You’re unable to leave your home
  • You find it difficult to bank online
  • You have a long stay in hospital
  • You’re going abroad for a while

You can choose to cancel third party access at any time.

Power of attorney

Third party access isn’t suitable for customers who need help managing their financial affairs due to their mental capacity. In these circumstances, a power of attorney would be better suited.

There are slight differences in how a power of attorney works depending on where in the UK you live. You can find out more information by following the links below:

The person you choose as your third party can do most day-to-day transactions on your behalf, either in a branch or over the phone. There are a few things they can’t do, but we’ll cover that in the third-party access form. 

No, they don't have to bank with us. If they’re not a TSB customer, they’ll need to complete an initial identification process before we can set up third party access.
