It's sometimes necessary for your account to be handled by someone that you trust. When you provide that to another individual, they become your Power of Attorney.
Your Power of Attorney will be given access to your account and have similar power to you for managing the account.
For your security, we'll need to check the identification of your nominated Power of Attorney. This involves recording details of their name, date of birth, address, telephone number, email address, solvency status, and bank details.
Alternatively, if you need someone to look after your account for a while, you can nominate an individual to have temporary access that will expire after a period of time.
You should be aware that an individual granted Power of Attorney will be able to see your balance, but will not be able to use Internet Banking on your behalf.
If you would like to set up Power of Attorney on your account, or provide someone with temporary access, visit the Document Library to download the Power of Attorney form, then send it back to us freepost.
