Easycash.

From 18th May 2015 you will be able to manage your Easycash account in branch. For full details take a look at the Easycash getting started guide.

Is this the right account for you?

Easycash provides a reduced banking service for customers who can't open one of our current accounts.

You may prefer to apply for a Halifax Current Account. If you are eligible for an Easycash account but not a Current Account we will offer you the Easycash account at the end of the application.

If you’re not eligible to open a full current account, there’s a simple answer. Easycash.

This account could be perfect for you if you:

  • need an account to pay your benefits into
  • have a limited income
  • have had financial difficulties in the past and been refused a current account
  • don’t want an overdraft facility and chequebook

The Easycash account comes with a Visa Electron card and a limited service in branch.
From 18th May 2015 this is changing and you will have a full branch service.

You can use our free mobile text alerting service to receive balance, limit and overseas transaction alerts.
