How do I pay money in to my Personal Savings Account?

IN: Personal Savings FAQs

You can make deposits by Faster Payments, BACS, CHAPS or Standing Order from your nominated account. You can also make deposits by transfer from an existing Aldermore Personal Savings account in your name or held jointly with someone else (where withdrawals are permitted), or, for ISAs, by transfer from another ISA provider. Payments to us from any other account will not be accepted and will be returned. We don’t accept deposits by cash, cheque or banker’s draft.

To make a deposit, simply use the details shown below to move money from your nominated account:

  • Our account number: 63684431
  • Our sort code: 20-19-90 (this may show as Barclays, we partner with them as our clearing bank)
  • Beneficiary name: Aldermore Bank
  • Payment reference: Your Account Opening Reference Number/Account Number and surname*

Please make sure that you correctly quote the beneficiary name and payment reference when you make a payment.

Confirmation of Payee has been introduced for electronic payments. This service checks the beneficiary name in the payment instruction against the name of the account where the payment is to be sent. If you bank with one of the providers who have implemented this service and the beneficiary name isn’t completed correctly, your bank may not be able to confirm that the details match.

If the payment reference isn’t correct, we won’t be able to allocate the payment to your account and it may be returned to you without interest.

Your bank may apply a maximum limit per transaction for payments made by Faster Payments and BACS.

It may take up to two business days for a payment to show on the account, however you'll earn interest from the business day on which the payment was received.

*When you completed your account opening online, you will have been given an account opening reference number. Once the account is open, you’ll receive an account number. Both of these numbers are unique to you and you can use either number as the Payment Reference.

Can I add money at any time?

For Easy Access Accounts, Notice Accounts, Notice Cash ISAs and our Easy Access Help to Buy: ISA, you can add money at any time. To pay money into your existing Notice Cash ISA and make the most of your 2019/2020 ISA allowance, please make sure that we receive your money by no later than 5 April. Any money received after this date will count towards your subscription for the 2020/2021 tax year.

For Fixed Rate Accounts and Fixed Rate Cash ISAs, you will have a limited period from account opening to make deposits. For Fixed Rate Cash ISAs, you’ll also need to return any ISA transfer forms in this period.

When will my money start earning interest?

Funds deposited by Faster Payments, BACS, CHAPS, standing order or by transfer from another account with us will start earning interest from the business day on which we receive them but may take up to two business days to show on the account.
