How can we help you?
As a building society we use Barclays Bank as our bank account provider, so don’t worry if you see Barclays appearing as the recipient bank when putting money into your Principality savings account.
To pay money in you will need to enter the following details:
Name/Payee: Principality Building Society
Sort code: 20-18-23
Account number: 90653535
Reference: your 9-digit Principality savings account number.
When transferring an ISA from another provider to us, the other financial institution will need to see a signed transfer document which can be downloaded here. If you don't have access to a printer, please send us a secure message on Your Account or email us, and we will print the document off and send it to you.
Please note, it can take 15 days for a cash ISA to be transferred and 26 days for a stocks and shares ISA to be transferred.
We understand these are difficult times and so if you need ongoing support with your mortgage or are worried about your finances as a result of COVID-19, we can explore a range of options with you, including a payment holiday of up to 6 months. Please fill in our mortgage payment holiday form or give us a call at least 7 working days ahead of your next scheduled payment.
If you have already had 6 months payment holiday, you will need to complete our Budget Planner as this will help us to assess your situation and tailor support to suit your needs. A member of the team will then get in touch to discuss your options with you.
