New legislation was passed in November 2008 enabling money from ‘dormant accounts’ to be paid into a central fund that is to be used for good causes. The definition of a dormant account is one that has had no customer initiated activity for fifteen years or more. The number of customers affected is actually very small. We have identified that less than 1% of our customers are affected and their combined balances are only 0.017% of the total savings balances held with the Society.
If you have an account with the Society and you are regularly in touch and have kept us informed of your current details, you don’t need to worry. This only affects accounts where the customer has not initiated any activity on their account for 15 years or more.
However, if you think you may have a lost or forgotten account with us, please click on the link below to our lost account enquiry form, and we will look into whether you have an account with us.
