Yes but I'm beginning to think I may have been misinformed so I'll ask at the branch tomorrow.
I've been given the wrong information before online - I use the internet banking with Secure Messaging - but when I double-checked at the branch the info I'd been given was wrong.
On that occasion I was given the wrong interest rate and it was all in connection with the Flexclusive ISA I want to start.
I'll let you know what the branch tells me!
This highlights one of the major problems deaf people have though - I have to use Banks where I can go into a branch because I can't use the 'phone.
It's all very well having telephone banking and advisers to 'phone but I can't do that and my wife just gets confused because she's not good on finance matters so I do all of ours.
I don't understand why banks & business do not try to improve email responses or, in many cases, actually answer emails as there are thousands of people like me and thousands more who would probably find emails a lot easier.
The Nationwide tends to be a bit slow in responding to Secure Messages but if I have any problem with my other bank I'm stuck because the nearest branch is Northampton or Aylesbury now.
After the performances of all the major High Street banks in recent years I do not trust any of them now and I've experienced RBS, Lloyds /TSB & NatWest in the past - Lloyds used to be fantastic and so was the old TSB!
That's why I'm with the Nationwide now. stevmk2
