I’m using Natwest just for a savings account so I transfer the money to the current account and it goes to savings via a standing order.
I’m curious how much you have to do to keep a current account from being closed due to inactivity or is that not a thing? Is what I’m doing enough because there is some activity or do I need to leave money in there as well
I’ve only usually ever had one account that I do everything with so never been an issue for me before.
I just leave £1 in my dormant current accounts. I’ve seen in T&Cs for some banks that they reserve the right to close your account due to inactivity but it’s usually a couple of years or something like that. It’s never happened to me, though.
Sorry to briefly re-open this but I wouldn’t even worry about doing this @Ryan - I’ve had a dormant NatWest account for years now. And never have they bothered to write to me or note it would be closed or anything.
It was last used in 2020 for a while, I’ve had it for 20+ years.
