How does the Switch process work?

Step 1 

The Current Account Switch Service will contact your old bank and they confirm if the switch can go ahead.

Step 2 

Your new account will then be set up and your payments, like your salary and bill payments will be moved across.

Step 3 

We talk to your old bank about transferring your balance over. On day 7 your balance will then be transferred and your old account will be closed. And that's your switch complete!

Switching with third party permissions

If you have given permissions to third party providers to make payments on your behalf, or to access your financial information, access to these services won’t be transferred automatically to your new account as part of the Current Account Switch Service.

Frequently asked questions

Ready to switch?

To help your switch progress as smoothly as possible, please ensure your personal details are the same on both your Ulster Bank account and the account you’d like to move. If you are moving a joint account, this can only be switched to a joint account in the same names.

Already have an Ulster Bank current account? 

As you already have a current account with us you can start the process straight away.

Just tell us the details for the account you want to switch (account numbers, names and sort codes) and we'll handle the rest.

Please note, a partial switch does not qualify for any switch incentives we may offer.
