Where do I find my PCF Account Number?

Once you have successfully logged in to your PCF Online Banking, you will see on the home page, the type of account you have opened along with the sort code 23-01-08 and next to that is your account number. Your account number begins ‘10XXXXXX’.

I’ve received ‘failed log in alerts’ but haven’t tried logging in, am I being hacked?

The reason you will have received these messages is because our Customer Numbers increase numerically, therefore it is likely that another PCF customer has accidentally typed their customer number instead of their own when trying to access their online banking.

However, if you are still unsure regarding this message, please contact a member of our team on 020 7227 7577.

How do I view my account balance?

You can log onto your PCF Online Banking>Accounts to view your transactions and balance.

Savings - Notice Account Common Questions

Do I have to give the full notice amount to withdraw my funds?

No, you can give notice to make a withdrawal on any amount within your available balance.

Can I cancel any notice that I have on my account?

Yes, you can cancel any given notice that you have on your account as long as it is more than 5 working days before the notice is due to be sent to your nominated account.

Does my account close automatically if I withdraw the full balance?

No, your notice account will still stay open at a nil balance. To close your notice account, you will need to contact the Savings team either via secure message via your PCF Online Banking or by phone and request a notice for closure to be placed on your account. Once the account is at a nil balance, we can then close your notice account and any accrued interest will be sent to your nominated bank account the next working day.

What is the minimum amount I can keep in my notice account?

When you first open your notice account, you need to fund the account initially with a minimum of £1,000.00, but once your account has had these funds in, it will stay open even if you chose to withdraw the full amount and it goes to a nil balance.
