Mobility or dexterity impairment
If you have difficulty using your hands or pressing a keypad, we try to make everyday banking easier. We can give extra support if you're unable to sign your name, and other practical tools for you to use:
- Easy grip pens.
- Signature stamps.
- Signature template cards.
- Cheque book templates.
- ID verification letters - so you prove who you are without a signature.
- Contactless payments, Apple Pay® and Google Pay
- Assistance dogs welcome in all branches
- Banking online or over the phone.
Many of our branches have easier access if you find walking difficult, or use a wheelchair or mobility scooter, with features such as:
- Step-free access
- Level/ramped entrances
- Automated doors.
We’ve got service bells in some locations. You can use these to let our colleagues know when you need them. They're placed prominently and at a suitable height for wheelchair users.
Not all branches have the same facilities. This is often because of where they are or the type and layout of the building. We do constantly look at factors like this and how it can affect customers.
Other ways we’re helping.
- Clipboard for signing documents
- Low level or sliding counters
- Walking-stick holders at our counters
- Interview rooms with wheelchair access
- Seating areas
- Low-level Halifax cash machines
- Helpful staff - just ask.

Still got questions?
I have trouble signing my name. How can I authorise transactions on my account?
We can accept any signature that you give us, as long as one of our branch colleagues can witness it. Or we can provide your own signature stamp for you. We can also give you a cheque book template to help you fill in the details, including your signature.
If you can't provide a signature, we can supply you with an ID verification letter. This allows you to use a debit or credit card without a PIN or signature. Contact your branch or card services to find out if you are eligible.
