My debit card has been lost, stolen or damaged

You can report this online using Online Banking or by following this guidance.

My debit card is blocked

  • If your card has blocked during a Chip & PIN payment in retailer you need to visit a Natwest or Royal Bank of Scotland cash machine. Insert your card and go to PIN services to unblock if PIN is known or order Pin re-advice if not known.
  • If you have entered your PIN wrong at an cash machine and blocked it you will need to contact our telephone banking team (opens in a new window) to order a PIN re-advice and wait for it to unblock overnight. If you do know your correct PIN you will be able to use it next day, if not you will have to wait for the re-advice to be received.
