Out of sight, out of mind.

How does The Vault work?

The Vault works by removing your savings account from sight, and the temptation to dip into your savings along with it.

You can set up a deterrent message to help you stay focused on your goal. Your message can be funny or serious – whatever works for you!

What else can I expect from The Vault?

When you put your savings account under the watchful eye of The Vault you can expect*:

  • Your account to be hidden from your account lists in digital banking - you can still pay money in, but you can’t transfer money out!
  • All other payments and transfers on your account will work as usual, such as card transactions and direct debits.
  • You'll see your account balances in your statement and in The Vault.
  • Rest easy, you can still access your funds in the event of an emergency.

The Vault is available in both online and mobile banking. Go on, unlock its power today.
