MID Cheshire NatWest and RBS customers will be able to use their banking services at the Post Office later this year.
Personal and business customers will be able to make deposits and pay in cheques at any of the Post Office’s 11,500 branches.
Nick Kennett, director of Post Office Financial Services, said: “We are delighted to extend the services offered to RBS and NatWest personal and business customers through the Post Office.
“With over 11,500 branches and longer opening hours we are making it easier for customers to conduct banking transactions at the same time as other service in their local Post Office.”
Research shows 90 per cent of the UK population live within one mile of a Post Office and the partnership brings RBS and NatWest-accessible customer sites to 22,500, plus online, mobile and telephone banking.
UK Retail CEO Les Matheson said: “Our customers are changing the way they bank with us. They want to be able to do their everyday banking in a variety of different ways - where and when it is convenient for them.
“We’re delighted to be able to extend our service with the Post Office to give our customers more choice in how they do their banking with us.”
Services at the Post Office will be subject to normal NatWest and RBS charges for business customers, where applicable.
