Can I open a current account if I am retired ?

Hi @Potandbrush5716, yes you can apply for our Current Account if you're retired :)

Thanks for that.

I have a Tesco Mastercard which I have had for very many years. Does that make it easier to open a current account?

Hi @tionro, as long as you're considered a full time resident within the UK, you will be able to apply for a current account. I hope this information helps and you can find out more about our current accounts in the following link:


I'm just moved to UK July, but I have tier 2 visa since October.

Can I open an account? although, I don't have a previous address for last three years

Hi @bipolet, as long as you can provide three years address history, you can apply. The addresses don't need to be in the UK and you can change the "country" field in the application :-) I hope that helps, but please get back in touch if you have any other questions.
