For existing TSB current account holders, the funds will be transferred to your bank account immediately between 9am and 8.30pm, or before 9am the following day if you’ve applied outside of these times.

When taking out a loan, the repayments will be based on how much you decide to borrow and the length of the repayment period. If your financial situation changes and you have more income, you can repay your loan early, either through one lump sum, or by paying back more each month.
This is known as a loan overpayment. Loan overpayments reduce the loan term, allow the customer to repay debts faster. Customers may also be entitled to a reduction in the total amount of interest owed when repaying loans early.
You can repay your loan early in full or part. To repay your loan early in full, including when you wish to refinance your existing loan, please contact us on 0800 111 4166 or visit us in Branch. We will arrange to send you a settlement balance. This is the amount you will need to pay to close your loan and is different to the current outstanding balance. Please note, we may charge you up to 58 days' interest on any full settlement you make.
If you make any other additional payments, we will use these to partially settle your loan. This means you will continue to make your normal monthly payments, but the number of repayments and the amount of your final repayment may change.
The interest rate of your loan is personal to you and will depend upon a number of factors including the amount borrowed, the term of the loan and your personal circumstances. To find out how much your loan will cost you can get a personalised quote, which won't affect your credit rating. This puts you under no obligation to proceed with the loan but will enable you to see how much you can borrow and what it may cost.
The amount you can borrow with a personal loan will depend on your personal circumstances, however we provide unsecured loans from £300 up to £50,000. For Graduate Loans, we provide loans from £1,000 up to £10,000.
* To apply for a loan between £300 - £999 and 25,000 - £50,000 you need to hold a TSB current account.
Before we can give you a decision, there are a few things we need to discuss with you. If you’ve held a TSB current account for more than 3 months please contact us on 0345 835 3861 (9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, closed weekends) and we can give you a decision right away. Calls may be recorded.
Customers must not have been declared bankrupt or have a County Court Judgement. All other customers who meet the eligibility criteria are entitled to apply. TSB completes a credit search for each new application made to enable us to give a credit decision.

This right to withdraw will start on the day after you sign your loan agreement. If you do wish to withdraw from your loan during this time you must repay, no later than 30 calendar days after giving notice of withdrawal, the total loan amount (this is the amount we paid into your account) and the daily interest that we charge, both can be found on the Loan Agreement.

You can repay your loan early at any time in full or part
We may charge you up to 58 days interest on any full settlement you make
If you make any additional payments we will use these to partially settle your loan. This means that you will continue to make your normal monthly payments, but the number of your repayments and the amount of your final repayment may change.
Additional payments can be made directly to your loan account from your TSB current account using Internet Banking, or by sending a payment to:
Sort code : 30-28-90 Account number : 00000000
and Loan agreement number as the reference. This can be found on your statement.
These are credited in line with our
payment timescales. Repayments made this way may take up to 48 hours to appear on the loan statement after we receive the payment, but we'll reduce the interest you'll pay from the day we receive it. There is no charge for making additional payments to a loan.
There may be lots of different reasons you might need to bank with us differently, either in the short term, or on a continuing basis. It could be because of your physical or mental wellbeing, or because of a life event you’ve experienced. Whatever the reason, we are committed to tailoring our support to your personal needs.
If you choose to tell us about your individual support needs, we will take the time to understand your circumstances and work with you to make sure you have the support you need when banking with TSB. We can add a Support Indicator to your account, which means whenever you talk to us, we'll be aware that you may need tailored support.
Unlike a secured loan, an unsecured loan isn’t taken out against the customers assets, such as a house or car. With an unsecured loan, you can borrow money from a bank by agreeing an amount as well as a repayment period. You will then make regular payments until the loan is repaid in full.
As an unsecured loan isn’t secured against the customer’s assets, this means interest rates tend to be higher, as it is riskier for the lender.
You’re more likely to be accepted for an unsecured loan if you have a good credit score, as the lender will see you as most likely to repay the loan in time and in full.
A secured loan is a loan linked to the customers assets. This tends to be property; however, it can also be taken out against a car and other assets. Secured loans tend to be used when borrowing more money than unsecured loans.
Lenders are more willing to offer larger amounts of money with secured loans and offer better rates. This is because they can reclaim the value of the customers assets if they cannot repay the loan.
If you can’t repay an unsecured loan, the lender can employ a collection agency to collect the debt, in some cases they can even take you to court.
If you default, you may have to pay additional charges, which can also harm your credit rating. However, banks or lenders will not be able to seize your assets if you can’t repay an unsecured loan. Although, you will still go to court and have a CCJ (County Court Judgement).
You may still be able to qualify for an unsecured loan, even with bad credit. However, as unsecured loans aren’t supported by any collateral, the borrower’s creditworthiness is a more important factor for lenders than with a secured loan.
