Saving

How do I open a savings account with PCF Bank?

We believe that opening a savings account should be quick and easy. If you are a new client, you can apply for a savings account either online or by post. Existing clients can log into their internet banking account and open an additional savings account directly –a quick and easy process that takes around 10 minutes to complete.

How do I transfer money into my account?

Once you’ve opened your account, you will be required to send money into it – but this is a quick and easy process as well. The funds will be sent to sort code 23-01-08 and your PCF Bank account number, which can be found by logging on to your internet banking.

There are two ways in which you can deposit funds into your account: electronic transfer or cheque. Electronic transfers must come from the bank account which you nominated in the application process. These can be made using Faster Payments, BACs or CHAPS. On a Notice Account, you can make as many deposits as you wish up to the account limit (£250,000). On a Term Deposit Account all funds must have reached the account within the first 14 calendar days of a successful application being completed, provided you stay within the product maximum of £250,000. Once the 14-days is reached the funding window is closed and you will no longer be able to transfer funds to your Term Deposit Account.

How many accounts can I open?

At PCF Bank, there is no limit to the number of accounts you can hold. However, the total funds within those accounts cannot exceed £500,000.

When and where is interest paid?

PCF Bank pays interest annually on the anniversary of the account’s opening, and that interest is paid directly into your nominated account. However, in the first year, our interest calculations only apply from the day on which the money was deposited. That means, if you open an account with us, then fund it with £10,000 seven days later, you will receive just 358 days’ interest in the first year of your account being open (excluding leap years). In subsequent years, of course, you will receive a full year’s interest on your money, provided it remains in the account.

How do I change my nominated account?

You can update your nominated account by logging on to your internet banking and sending a secure message. If we are unable to confirm these details, we may ask for supporting documentation. This will be in the form of a crossed cheque or an original bank statement.

Can I open a joint account?

You can open sole or joint accounts. A joint account can have a maximum of 2 people on it. Joint accounts can be accessed by any one party at any time, amendments to the account will not need both parties to sign.

Will I receive any notified when my account has been opened?

When you open your account, you will receive a confirmation email and SMS message when it is open and active.

What is my interest rate?

You will be able to view your interest rate when you log onto your internet banking, you can also call us to find out. If you have not opened an account yet all rates can be viewed online.
