We’ve made some important changes to our branch network

Find out how to manage your accounts online from now on

As one of the largest and strongest building societies in the UK, we continually review how our Society is run to make sure we’re acting in the best long-term interests of all our members.

That’s why, after careful consideration, we’ve closed some of our Yorkshire Building Society branches.

Details of the branches that are affected are in the table below.

Why we are making these changes?

Over time we have seen fewer of our members using branches and an increasing number using the internet to manage their accounts. We are still fully committed to offering a face-to-face service but also need to recognise the evolving ways in which customers want to transact.

Affected branches

To find the most convenient alternative branch for you,  you can check the address details and opening hours for all of our branches and local agencies by using our branch finder .

Yorkshire Building Society local agencies

Yorkshire Building Society carefully selects businesses to act as local agencies on our behalf. Agencies are able to offer Yorkshire Building Society savings accounts and simple savings transactions. There are some differences between Yorkshire Building Society branches and Yorkshire Building Society agencies such as daily and weekly withdrawal limits, for more details please click here.

Managing your accounts

Some Yorkshire Building Society accounts can currently be accessed and managed online. You can see if any accounts you hold with us can be managed online and find out how to register for online services by viewing our managing your YBS accounts page.

Telephone transactions

Once you register for online access to your accounts, you can also use the same password to manage your account over the telephone (subject to the terms of your account). When you call us, you’ll be asked for a number of characters from your online password so that we can verify your identity.

If you need any help

We understand that this may be a significant change for some customers and we’re here to help you find the best way forward following the closure of these branches. We’ve written to all our members affected by these closures but if you have any questions or concerns about branch closures or other ways to manage your accounts please don’t hesitate to get in touch on 0345 166 9236 or talk to us in branch.
