How do I pay in a cheque if I’m self-isolating?

If you are self-isolating or unable to make a journey to our branches/ post office as a result of coronavirus you can pay a cheque into your account by sending it to us via post if it meets the following criteria:

  • Cheques will only be accepted with a paying-in slip
  • Cash must not be sent, it will not be processed and there will be no way to return it to you
  • You’ll need a paying in slip, which you’ll find either in your paying in book, or at the back of your cheque book.
  • You can’t request that a cheque is paid to multiple accounts, we will only accept; 1 cheque with 1 paying-in slip or multiple cheques with 1 paying-in slip
  • Cheques will be processed within 5 working days of receipt
  • The cheque(s) is in pounds sterling.

If you want to send a foreign cheque:

  • Cheques will only be accepted with a paying-in slip
  • Cheques will be physically sent to the foreign bank for processing and it can take up to 12 weeks for funds to be received

If you are happy to do so you can send your cheque and paying in slip to:
