No monthly fee
Our basic Foundation bank account
This account might suit you if you’re not eligible for any of the other accounts you apply for. It's a basic account to help you manage your money. To see whether you're eligible for this type of current account you need to first apply for one of our other accounts like our Select bank account.
Our Select bank account has no monthly fee, and has an option to apply for an Arranged Overdraft, it also comes with a contactless debit card. If you don’t meet the criteria for the Select account we may offer you the Foundation account instead.
To see if you are eligible for our Foundation account:
- Apply online below for our Select account
- During the application process if the Foundation account will better suit your needs we will let you know within your application
You can’t apply directly for the Foundation current account. We’ll offer it to you if we think it might be more suitable after you’ve applied for one of our other accounts.
