Things you can do at the Post Office

    • Use your debit card and PIN to pay cash into your account.
    • Once your cash has been counted, you’ll be given a receipt, and you’ll have instant access to your money.
    • You can pay in up to £2,955 a month over Post Office counters and up to £20,000 in a calendar year. If you have a joint account, you can each pay in up to £2,955 a month and £20,000 per year.
    • If you don’t have a debit card, you can pay money into your account using a pre-printed paying-in slip. These slips are personalised, so you must use your own slip when you pay in your cash. You can order these at a Halifax branch, or you can give us a call.
    • The most cash you can pay in, as a single deposit, using your paying-in slip is £1,000.
    • When you use a paying-in slip, the money will show in your account and be available to use the next working day.
    • When you pay in a cheque, you’ll need to use a cheque envelope and a paying-in slip. You can get cheque envelopes at the Post Office or in any Halifax branch, but we’ll need to order paying in slips for you. We can do this in any Halifax branch, or you can give us a call.
    • Cheques paid in at the Post Office will take at least one additional working day to credit your account.
    • If you're paying in cash and cheques at the same time, you’ll need a paying in slip and cheque envelope for your cheques and a separate paying in slip for your cash.
  • You can withdraw up to £300 a day from your current account, at the Post Office. All you need is your debit card and PIN. These withdrawals are free but do count towards your £800 daily ATM limit. So, if you withdraw £300 over the Post Office counter, you’ll only be able to withdraw a further £500 from a cash machine, on the same day.

  • You can check your balance at the counter. All you need is your debit card and PIN.

Good to know

  • Coins below £1 – only full coin bags will be accepted as per the amounts specified on the bags. £1 and £2 coins will be accepted in partial bags if the coins are separate. The maximum that you can pay in for any single deposit is £250.
  • Every Post Office branch has different cut-off times for paying in cash and for paying in cheques. If you deposit after the cut-off time, an additional working day to process may apply. Please check at the Post Office you want to use what the relevant cut-off time is.
  • Services described above are available during opening hours, on working days at any branch of the Post Office within England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, excluding those in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.
