Important Information for our customers
Unfortunately we are once again experiencing technical issues with our systems and account balances have not updated properly overnight. This means where money has gone into a customers' account, there may be a delay in it appearing on their balance.
We can assure our customers that this problem is strictly of a technical nature and we continue to work hard to resolve this.
We also recognise this is an unacceptable inconvenience for our customers, for which we apologise.
Staff in our branches and at our call centres are ready and available to answer any questions and help where they can.
