David Ruffley Supports Local Post Office Trial

Friday, 14 June, 2013

At 11am on Friday 14 June, David Ruffley MP visited Bury St Edmunds Post Office to open his own new Post Office Current Account being trialled at 29 post office branches in East Anglia, including at Bury.

The trial will provide valuable insight into how Post Office Ltd could adapt its Current Account packages, before a planned launch across the whole network takes place in 2014.

David said: “The Post Office is well established, trusted and respected, so it is great that The Post Office has launched these Current Accounts. With 11,800 branches nationwide, including several in my constituency, everybody has a branch nearby. Banking with a Post Office Current Account is therefore easy.”

• Registration for a new account can be done in a branch or at www.postoffice.co.uk/currentaccounts/register

• Three new accounts – Standard Account, Packaged Account and Control Account will be available

• Initial pilot will launch in 29 branches in East Anglia with a wider rollout across the Post Office network planned for 2014

• Post Office takes the next major step in growing its range of financial services

• The introduction of the Post Office current account, in partnership with Bank of Ireland UK, will offer greater choice for customers as well as a more inclusive approach to banking.
